Department of Reading is an ongoing collaborative project created and maintained together with Soenke Hallman (theoretician), Michael Murtaugh (programmer), Gon Zifroni (designer), and several other participants (full documentation can be found here: Department of Reading). The project included a live event held in Berlin on December 1st and 2nd. Software custom created for this event (developed by Michael Murtaugh and myself) channeled messsages from Skype to wikis, software bots, search engines -- and back. This generated new modalities of reading and discussing texts online. ducumentaion about this sepcific event can be found here: Symposium for Readers
