Noah Wardrip-Fruin is a Creative Writing Fellow at Brown University.
He is the lead editor of The New Media Reader (with Nick
Montfort) and of First Person: New Media as Story, Performance,
and Game (with Pat Harrigan), both of which are forthcoming from
MIT Press. His past work includes Gray Matters, a
collaborative fiction embedded in images of a human body. Its
presentation at the Sandra Gering Gallery in 1996 was the first
public presentation of a zooming user interface. His work on it was
supported by an Edward Albee Foundation Fellowship.
Adam Chapman is an artist, writer, and designer. His work has been
presented at The American Museum of the Moving Image, The Pittsburgh
Children's Museum, the DeCordova Museum, D.U.M.B.O. Film and Video
Festival, and SIGGRAPH. He has been nominated for a Rockefeller New
Media grant. He is Art Editor for the magazine CROWD, and was Art
Gallery Papers Coordinator for SIGGRAPH 2002. His work has been
written about in The New York Times Online, Newsweek, and
Communication Arts. He holds an MFA in fiction from the New School
Brion Moss, being an engineer by training and vocation, does not
generally think of himself as an artist, but thoroughly enjoyed being
part of the conceptualization and creation of The Impermanence
Agent. He is currently employed as a computer geek by his alma
mater, UC Berkeley.
Duane Whitehurst has been working in the Internet field for far too
long now. He has done work for the Voyager Company and NYU along with
several small web shops you have probably never heard of. Duane feels
very lucky to have worked with the likes of Noah, Adam, and Brion and
thinks it's a testament to the Net's potential that the Agent
group didn't have its first in-person meeting until the project was
completed. Duane is currently hiding out in the Pacific Northwest
building websites, playing guitar, and trying to spend as much time
outdoors as possible.
