Nick Montfort

Nick Montfort is a poet and professor of digital media at MIT. He has written and written about interactive fiction, collaborated on the blog ''Grand Text Auto'', and developed many digital poems and text generators. His most recent books are ''The Future'' (MIT Press, 2017) and ''The Truelist'' (computer-generated poetry, Counterpath, 2017). A futures studies reviewer describes ''The Future'' as "written by an outsider to the foresight community" who "examines the works of artists, inventors, and designers and how they have imagined the future." The book was reviewed as "striking a balance between planning and poetry ... a sober, tight account of what 'the future' is and has been, as well as how to think and make it." Among Montfort's several computer-generated books is ''#!'' (said "shebang"), in which he "chooses the programming languages Python, Ruby, and Perl (the last of which has a documented history as a poetic medium) to create impressions of an ideal—machines based on the rules of language." The book includes a Python version of "Taroko Gorge," which is available online in JavaScript and has been modified by many authors. Some of these "remixes" are collected in ''The Electronic Literature Collection: Volume 3.'' Montfort and Ian Bogost wrote ''Racing the Beam: The Atari Video Computer System'' (MIT Press, 2009). Montfort also wrote ''Twisty Little Passages: An Approach to Interactive Fiction'' (MIT Press, 2003) and co-edited ''The Electronic Literature Collection: Volume 1'' (ELO, 2006) and ''The New Media Reader'' (MIT Press, 2003).
