Through a mailing list - nettime to be more specific.

> 1. What is agent Ms Post Modemism's history?

Ms Post Modemism has no history  
Ms Post Modemism has a herstory
the story is long it reaches far back into bloodbloated pasts and snags it
way into a viscous future and mixes space and tense and narrative (jigsawing)
it has aborted storylines, jilted meanings and a touch of static
Ms P M has gestated inside others like
Passe Parvenu
Ms Corruption
and now emmerges from her voidwhitescreen to mix and match cut and paste
puke and rant inside the muthamatrix 
neva forgetting the flesh (all the while)

enslog chat I'm about to stream called 'The Writer As
Pseudo-Autobiographical Work-In-Progress' this chat space I am
occasonally employing the practice of surf-sample-manipulate, that is, I am
cutting and pasting previously recorded text into the multi-user chat
environment as if it were me "speaking" in the present...

   amerika: is this me in the present?
   amerika: or pre-recorded?
        ti: no its you

Modemism = *flash flash* red light go, green light....millenium musings echo
thru a digital aftershocking..i will be here to capture u...

currencies of meaning won't stop me *types she*

   amerika: I am doing this from home, which for me is here in Boulder
Colorado, where I am doing what many writers before have done, that is, I
am sitting a desk with a writing tool composing my writing-life right
before our very eyes...
       mez: shood we shuddup?
       mez: or interACT?
            clipper reiterates mez question
   amerika: mez, let me tell my story!
   amerika: is it me or is it prerecorded?

To break the links that bind meaning (associations blackboxing)
and employ reconstructive image surgery (text wanderings)

> 6. Is there specific area agent Ms Post Modemism wants to cover?


amerika: proliferate, yes...and fragment too
--> sue  dope does the same to me, cant do it either!
   amerika: the novel is for paper -- but there will be conceptual art
works in new media that parallel it...
       mez: concept.U.all artworks? like.....?
   amerika: Yes, Sue, the opening chapter was just published by Penguin UK
in an anthology called New York Stories...ed. Nicholas Royle
       Sue: I do think there are problems for writers who work in new media
due to the tempattion to reowrk in different formats

> 7. Will there be several reports from agent Ms Post Modemism - are we

actively engaging
reporting as we cyberspeak (unspecified drug object projects itself into the
real in quasibook formings - Aspiring to peguinsuitedhood lurks in its
fiction allocated zone)..the best is yet to come
see report one
and instalment one of report two

incorporations into a cybergellish mold...
I send the reports and will await yr presentation of them

this interrogative questioning list and answers should be present *introded

I have resent report one (unspecified drug object)
report two is here - more fictionalized fiction:

amerika: ah, but that's how you measure value.  and once this value is
consistently measured, so too will money follow -- it's earlyin the game,
       Sue: clipper - no sorry i am not being clear---
       mez: ti>>i agree, seems the very unit of measurement in multimedia -
the teXt, lettas, etc - is a constraint and freedom valve all at 1ce
