More suggestions for Ada Lovelace Day  :-)

My name - Marc Garrett.

Josephine Bosma

Josephine is also important to mention, especially in repsect of her 
work around net art, networked cultures and media art generally. From 
1991 until 1998 Josephine Bosma worked with the independent station 
Radio Patapoe in Amsterdam and also with VPRO radio, a Dutch national 
broadcaster. Since 1993 her focus has been on media art and media theory 
and she has published numerous interviews and essays in book collections 
and in magazines including Mute (UK), Telepolis (D), UHK (NO), and 
Switch (USA). She played a key part in organizing the radio part of the 
Next 5 Minutes 2 and Next 5 Minutes 3 festivals, and has edited the 
streaming media sections of the nettime book, ReadMe and the N5M3 
workbook. In January 2001 Josephine initiated the newsletter for net art 
criticism, Cream. Josephine Bosma lives and works in Amsterdam. 
Josephine Bosma's Database, here you will find essays, articles, lecture 
notes, transcripts and broadcasts etc - 


Sadie Plant

The most important Sadie Plant book for me was 'The Most Radical 
Gesture: The Situationist International in a Postmodern Age, published 
in 1992. It's one of those books that you read over and over again. What 
I personally got from it was how rich her perspective was in contrast to 
most Situationist historical texts on the subject, and more expansive. 
Here is a link to an interesting interview with Sadie Plant Brett by 
Stalbaum and Geri Wittig - http://switch.sjsu.edu/web/v5n1/plant/

If you have not read The Most Radical Gesture and do not wish to take 
the risk of  buying it, why not visit here on Questia where you can read 
it on-line and copy etc http://www.questia.com/PM.qst?a=o&d=103446663

wishing all well.
