Another new blog....

A new blog for the discussion of hyperstition and related issues is now here. There are inaugural posts from Linda Trent of Miskatonic Virtual University and Reza Negarestani of Cold Me, with posts from Nick Land, Anna Greenspan and Steve Hyperdub of Ccru to follow. This should be a major resource for the exploration of hyperstitional theory and practice.

For those wanting an introduction to hyperstition, I would thoroughly recommend the Ccru's essay on Burroughs and hyperstition, 'Lemurian Time War', (recently published in RETAKING THE UNIVERSE: William S. Burroughs in the Age of Globalization, Pluto Press 2004).

Anyone who feels they would like to contribute should mail here.

Special thanks, once again, to the wonderful Abe for hosting the blog (and for invaluable assistance setting it up), and to Boris and Reza for all their efforts in getting it off the ground.

I wonder if its comments box rejects submissions which include links ending in comdotcn?
