E-Lit Forums

ELO, Volume 1

English 214 – Culture and Technology was offered for the first time at Capilano University in Fall 2008 in conjunction with the Year 2 CultureNet core courses.  The primary text was the Electronic Literature Collection, Volume 1.  We explored the work of dozens of writers and enjoyed the firsthand pleasure of working with three of the writers anthologized in the ELC1: J.R. Carpenter, Donna Leishman + Brian Kim Stefans.  One year later, we are doing it all over again with Megan Sapnar Ankerson, Sharif Ezzat + Chris Joseph.

In its first two incarnations, the E-Lit Forums have been a three-part process:

  1. Guest writers post a meditation on their work in advance of  the class devoted to their pieces. We arrive in class ready to discuss the post with reference to the writers’ work anthologized in the ELC1 and elsewhere.
  2. The posts lead to animated provocative in-class discussions and the students generate three to five questions for the guest writers, which are posted to the blog.
  3. The writers then respond to our questions in a final post and a discussion of the responses is woven into the following week’s classes.

We have been thoroughly impressed by the generosity of our guest bloggers.  Their observations and insights have suggestively expanded our sense of this emergent genre and its place in the literary landscape of the twenty-first century.   The sense of being a part of an emerging literary critical conversation is  magnified when we received shout outs in the artist’s own blogs and websites (as we did from Chris Joseph).

We look forward to repeating this digital twist on the traditional author’s visit and sharing the meditations and conversations that follow with fellow avid readers of electronic literature and digital poetry in the next fall.  In the meantime, what follows below is a series of links to the 2008 and 2009 E-Lit Forum posts.

  3. Another issue that you must stay on top of is price fluctuations from the bookmaker. The prices for placing bets do not just change with different bookies but even with the same. You cannot take it for granted that the prices that are quoted in print like the Racing Post will be valid at the time of the event. With sports betting things can change very rapidly so be sure that the price will be honored before placing your bet otherwise this can seriously affect the outcome of your arbitrage sports betting.

    Following the philosophy of pyramiding, what happens in this system is that you place a bet and if you come out a winner you re-invest the winnings on the next wager. So in horse racing, for example, you simply let it ride. Also, unlike the other betting systems, the Parlay System offers a lower amount of risk of all bettors for because they only need be concerned with a win, place or show selection or a combination thereof.

    The Paroli System, of all the famed sports betting systems, is thought to be opposite that of Martingale. Where the difference lies is on the scheme that with the Paroli System, you start with one wager and then up the wager when you win rather than with a loss. This system lets the profit run and cut short the losses, which makes it appealing due to the fact that you don’t have to have a lot of money to be able to use it effectively.

    If you are employing neither of those two elements, then the risk you run of eventually losing your entire Base Bank is 99.99%. On the other hand, employing only a good Selection System would not only reduce your risk closer to just 10% maximum, you would also have up to a 10% chance of making money. This would mean that the Bookies would suddenly be faced with a 10% possibility of losing to you long-term, rather than a 99.99% certainty of taking your money from you. Throw in a proper Staking Plan on top of that, and you will have increased your chances of winning to as high as 20%.
