Electronic Literature Organization

Astute readers of the Scout Report may find themselves asking: "What is electronic literature?" Well, as defined by the Electronic Literature Organization (ELO) the term refers to "works with important literary aspects that take advantage of the capabilities and contexts provided by the stand-alone or networked computer." The ELO was started in 1999, and since that time the organization has worked to facilitate bringing new works in this arena to the general web-savvy public. Visitors to the homepage can proceed to examine any number of new works, such as the non-linear work "Shandean Ambles", authored by Deena Larsen. Along with the usual contact information, the site also has a tab for presenting information about the ELO's programs, such as the "Preservation, Archiving, and Dissemination (PAD) Project", which is designed to identify and protect endangered electronic literature and like-minded creations. The site is made complete with a news archive that dates back to July 2000.
