The Fader interviews Kode9:
This is the first time Goodman is talking to the press since Gordon’s passing. “When the cold wind of death decides to blow through your area, it tends to leave a trail of zeros,” he says of the past year, his Scottish roots still evident in his voice, lending it a melodic tone. He gathers his thoughts before continuing, “and they change your perspective on things. Make you realize what matters, what needs to be gotten rid of.” Another pause. “There’s a bit of a reset.” (TSP emphasis.)
Chris Shambaugh reviews CCRU: Writings 1997-2003 at &&&.
German Sierra on ‘Deep Media Fiction’ (preliminary draft):
If the ghost used to be the subject of action, it is now the machine who becomes responsible for animating the ghost. The consequence of this action-reversal is that what works mechanically — or organically — can only be examined, modelled or modified in accordance to the (recurrent) reloading of humanist discourses …

Neat queues seen lining up for their early copy of Ccru: Writings 1997-2003
Ccru: Writings 1997-2003 was uploaded to the Kindle platform 5 minutes ago. Should be available within the next couple of days.

ADDED: OK, go for it. (Table of contents works on the product, even if it doesn’t show up at the Kindle store.)
The publishing schedule has slipped a little on our Ccru: Writings 1997-2003 collection, as we work on the cover and slot in some diagrams. Still firmly intending to get this puppy out — and accessible — by the end of the month.
Current Kindle-format word-length is a little over 660 pages (about 80,000 words of text). Price will be $6.99.
Only finished pieces have been included, so there remains a toxic-waste barrel full of assorted writhing things to be processed into ‘shape’ down the line if this all works out.
Much excitement at this end about bringing the project to completion.
