Leonardo Electronic Almanac Discussion (LEAD)
"Wild Nature and Digital Life"
Moderated by Marcus Bastos and Ryan Griffis

This issue, we introduce the "Leonardo Electronic Almanac Discussion" (LEAD) accompanying our "Wild Nature and Digital Life " special. LEAD will have two components, a live chat session with our authors and artists and a moderated discussion list for readers to engage with the special issue authors (see below for access information).

What is the LEA Wild Nature and Digital Life Special?
Guest edited by Dene Grigar and Sue Thomas, the issue features Peter Hasdell, Tara Rodgers, Dave Burraston, Andrew Martin, Jennifer Willet, Adam Gussow, Dr Kathryn Yusoff, Jeremy Hight and Brett Stalbaum. The essays are packaged with a small but powerful gallery of two works, exhibiting Karl Grimes, Elisa Giaccardi, Hal Eden and Gianluca Sabena.

If you miss the chats and forum, fret not, an abridged version of the discussions will be made available with the next issue of LEA.

Chat Schedule:
:: Jeremy Hight & Peter Hasdell - 1 February 2007 @ 1700hrs EST
:: Sue Thomas & Giselle Beiguelman - 29 January 2007 @ 1700hrs EST
:: Jennifer Willet - 17 January 2007 @ 1700hrs EST
