My most recent work combines creative coding with critiques of digital culture. There’s Ring™ Log, which is an experiment in speculative surveillance. Then there’s Two Emoji: A Modern Epic of Love and Betrayal, which is a playful look at storytelling through emoji.
My most recent book project is 10 PRINT CHR$(205.5+RND(1)); : GOTO 10, a collaboratively written exploration of creative computing and the Commodore 64, which was published by MIT Press in November 2012.
Between 2010 and 2014 I was a regular contributor to ProfHacker, a feature at the Chronicle for Higher Education that focuses on pedagogy and scholarly productivity. From 2010 to 2012 I wrote for Play the Past, a collaboratively edited scholarly blog that explores the intersection of cultural heritage and games.
These days I spend most of my time teaching, advising students, writing, coding and creating neticism—criticism of the net, on the net. You can find me online at samplereality.com or on Twitter as @samplereality.
