Editor's Notes

  • webtexts
  • Principal of webtext deisgn: UNIQUE DESIGNS, where form::content meet.

    A major goal of webtexts is to enact their rhetorical arguments through design work. (This is a piece from 2009, argument about juxtaposition and wunderkammers facilitating invention)
  • Webtext principal: Process-based research
    In the August issue of Kairos, interaction design researchers Einar Sneve Martinussen, Jørn Knutsen, and Timo Arnall (2014) published a peer-reviewed webtext that showcases the design-process methodologies they used to construct a project called “Satellite Lamps.”

    As Martinussen (2013) explained, the team explored and visualized “how GPS takes place in urban environments. The team has looked at the relationships between urban space, time and satellite-geometry, and design and has developed instruments and techniques for visualising the presence and the fluctuations of satellite signals.”
  • The opening video shows how the team’s time-lapse film methodology works to visualise these signals. The three authors worked together to produce the video, as well as curate multiple slideshows from their photographic archive, research additional scholarly materials for the rich transdisciplinary literature review, write the linguistic (written) content, and design the webtext in Ruby (which they had to transfer to HTML for Kairos’s archival purposes).
  • Kairos isn’t the only journal in digital writing studies, or more broadly in media studies, that publishes webtexts. Other journals have been in or more recently joined this publishing field, such as Computers and Composition Online (published from 1996–1999 and 2001–present), which is the strongest contender to Kairos. But there is also Enculturation, Vectors Journal, Harlot of the Arts, the Journal of Artistic Research, Public, and a few others.

    —> I’ve researched technical sustainability and longevity of these journals, most of which don’t gave a great track record.
  • collecting beta testers & minimal publicity.
