The Definitely Not Hacked By Stephen Colbert Super PAC (taken verbatim from the Colbert Super Pac email)
Dear Long Lost Super PAC Members, Shh...act normal, and read this quietly. It's me, Stephen Colbert. I have hacked into the Definitely Not Coordinating With Stephen Colbert Super PAC email mainframe by guessing Jon's password. It was "silverhairedandsexy7." So obvious. As you know, Jon Stewart has been holding this Super PAC hostage. I shudder to think how he's spending all of my beloved money. I bet he made the classic rookie mistake and went for the individually-wrapped caviar. Luckily, I have a plan to get my Super PAC back – and this one is bound to work better than my previous plan: leaving out a pile of Acme Jon Seed in the road and trying to drop an anvil on him. You see, I know something Jon doesn't. The Super PAC is too powerful for him. Like a wild stallion, it cannot be tamed. It wants to run free across the american electoral system. Jon Stewart will never break it – it will only break him. So please, donate a little more the the Super PAC. Give it power. It will flex its money-haunches, burst free from its paddock, and gallop back home to me. Then I will braid its mane and tell it my dreams. Metaphorically, of course. Yours truly, Stephen Colbert President-In-Exile The Super PAC Previously Known As The Colbert Super PAC
I advise on the design of narratives in interactive environments, including screen-based works, in situ installations, online social networking sites, cross-platform projects, interactive short films, most recently an interactive graphic novel. In 2006/07 I was the narrative design consultant on Late Fragment, a feature film/dvd (CFC/NFB) & screened at Cannes. I have advised on over interactive 60 works many of which have gone on to win awards in Canada & abroad (Pax Warrior, [murmur], Painting the Myth). My position at the Media Lab has given me the ongoing opportunity to critically engage with the development of emergent forms in digital media & to test theory against practice. This spring, I mentored the Digital Development Lab in Vancouver.
Research: function, design, & experience of narrative in interactive environments, the narrative potential of haptic interfaces & the future of entertainment in a cross-platform, Web 2.0/3.0 world; impact of interactive works in the context of Toronto’s arts fests, Luminato & Nuit Blanche.
