The MIT Press

The trAce Online Writing Centre was founded in 1995 by Sue Thomas at Nottingham Trent University, UK. Over the next decade trAce expanded along with the web, evolving organically and somewhat haphazardly into a vast interlinked network created by many different artists, authors and researchers, during a period of rapid technological change. What emerged was one of the web’s earliest and most influential international creative communities. This chapter outlines the historical context, complex media ecology, diverse membership, wide-ranging influences, and vast and varied output of trAce, much of which has been collected together in a unique archive which can be explored online here: <http://tracearchive.ntu.ac.uk/>
