This volume originated in HASTAC’s first international conference, “Electronic Techtonics:
Thinking at the Interface,” held at Duke University during April 19-21, 2007. “Electronic
Techtonics” was the site of truly unforgettable conversations and encounters that
traversed domains, disciplines, and media – conversations that explored the fluidity
of technology both as interface as well as at the interface. This hardcopy version
of the conference proceedings is published in conjunction with its electronic counterpart
(found at www.hastac.org). Both versions exist as records of the range and depth of
conversations that took place at the conference. Some of the papers in this volume
are almost exact records of talks given at the conference, while others are versions
that were revised and reworked some time after the conference. These papers are drawn
from a variety of fields and we have not made an effort to homogenize them in any
way, but have instead retained the individual format and style of each author.
