On LinguaMOO, hosted at the University of Texas at Dallas from circa 1999 to 2003, the author conducted a series of online chats from her apartment in Colorado -- at first, on her own, and then sponsored by the Electronic Literature Organization (ELO). She invited lecturers and the electronic literature community; served virtual tea, coffee and pastry; introduced guests and suggested topics. Discussions included archiving, tools, the differences between print literature and electronic literature, the definition of electronic literature, readers of electronic literature, and the future of electronic literature. Participants included Jane Yellowlees Douglas, Robert Kendall, Talan Memmott, Jennifer Ley, Nick Monfort, Noah Wardrip-Fruin, Stuart Moulthrop, M.D. Coverley, Stephanie Strickland, John McDaid, Bill Bly, Sue Thomas, and Katherine Hayles, among many others. In addition to discussions and participants, this chapter also details the use of MOOs for online discussion and the creation of archives for the ELO Chats.
