tychoish, a wiki


tychoish is an evolving and diverse hypertext anthology, including the rhizome blog, pages on technical writing, information debt, and careers and scholarship/intellectual practice. Frequent topics include: new media, open source technology, science fiction literature, writing, and the cyborg moment.

I'm Sam Kleinman, and I curate/run tychoish, often writing as tychoish or tycho garen. My main projects these days are the Cyborg Institute, leading documentation projects for a software company in New York City, and writing science fiction stories. tychoish.com is a wiki: there's a suggestion and submission box for ideas, links, and improvements. Also consider the cyborg institute listserv for additional discussion.
