We Descend has been accepted for an artist’s talk/demonstration at ELO_2012, the Electronic Literature Organization‘s Convention in Morgantown WV on 20-23 June. The site is West Virginia University, not far from where daring young felons from my high school used to slip across the border from PA in order to purchase contraband intoxicants (3/2 beer in those days — or was that Ohio? — also cigarettes; both illegal to punkKidz like us).

But we believe in ourself, and know what to do if they can’t take a joke…
