Personal strategies for avoiding poet-borne diseases include avoiding grassy areas with shrubs that attract poets, wearing white or light-colored clothing so that attached poets can be seen easily and removed, tucking pant legs into socks, walking in the center of paths to avoid vegetation on which poets lie in wait of a host, applying lotion containing diethyltoluamide to the skin (avoiding face and hands), applying permethrin to clothing, and performing daily poetry checks and removing poets as soon as they are detected.
The Leonardo Electronic Almanac (ISSN No: 1071-4391) is inviting papers and artworks that deal with New Media Poetry and Poetics. This category includes multimedia digital works(image/text/sound) as examined through the lens of "writing," specifically any of those concerns central to poetry rather than narrative or prose: reader as active participant in the "ergodic" sense, the use of stochastic methods and chance procedures, and the complex relations between the author, reader, and computer-as-writer/reader which evolve from that interaction. Modes of work that foreground the digital medium (such as "codework") are also welcome. We would particularly like to emphasize the "poetics" of new media writing as well, that is, the point where aesthetics intersects with politics to create dynamic attempts at social change.
LEA encourages international artists / academics / researchers / students to submit their proposals for consideration. We particularly encourage authors outside North America and Europe to send proposals for articles/gallery/artists statements.
Proposals should include:
- 300 word abstract / synopsis
- A brief author biography
- Any related URLs
- Contact details
Deadline for proposals: 15 Aug 2004

Established in 1993, the Leonardo Electronic Almanac (ISSN No: 1071-4391) is the electronic arm of the pioneer art journal, Leonardo - Journal of Art, Science & Technology.
The Leonardo Electronic Almanac (LEA), jointly produced by Leonardo, the International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology (ISAST) and published under the auspices of MIT Press is an electronic journal dedicated to providing a forum for those who are interested in the realm where art, science
and technology converge.
This peer reviewed e-journal includes profiles of media arts facilities and projects, profiles of artists using new media, feature articles comprised of theoretical and technical perspectives; the LEA Gallery exhibiting new media artwork by international artists; detailed information about new publications in various media; and reviews of publications, events and exhibitions. Material is contributed by artists, scientists, educators and developers of new technological resources in the media arts.
Since 2002, LEA formed a strategic alliance with fineArt forum - the Internet's longest running arts magazine. Through this partnership, LEA concentrates on adding new scholarship and critical commentary to the art, science and technology field, with LEA subscribers benefiting from the latest news, announcements, events, and job/educational opportunities through fAf's online news service.
LEA's mission is to maintain and consolidate its position as a leading online news and trusted information filter while critically examining arts/science & technological works catering to the international CAST (Community of Artists, Scientist and Technologists)
I would like to announce The Analogous Series. This reading/event series based in Cambridge delights in exacerbating a productive confusion between different media, especially through the process of collaboration.
