Conference Proceedings Digital Materials
(4608.0 megabytes, Disk images derived from two optical discs. Approximately 4.5 gigabytes.)

Digital files distributed after the conference on both compact and digital versatile disc. Because of storage limits, each differs slightly in what is stored. On the compact disc, audio recordings of artists talks, video recordings of some talks, and descriptions of installations are included. The larger capacity disc includes video recordings of the artists talks, as well as video recordings of exhibits and installations. Both discs were created with Windows and Macintosh platforms in mind, but require Shockwave players in order to render content.

(3.0 megabytes, Disk images derived from two 3.5" floppy disks and a TAR archive file. Approximately 4 megabytes.)
TechnoPoetry Festival Mixed Media Digital Materials
(0.0 , Disk images derived from two external hard drives. Approximately 132 gigabytes. Logical files extracted from a failing third external hard drive. Approximately 56 gigabytes.)

Digital files fall mainly into three categories related to the TechnoPoetry Festival--materials related to the artists who spoke or otherwise participated at the festival, materials related to the creation of the conference proceedings media, and materials related to the Festival's web presence. Materials pertaining to the artists include video of some exhibitions, video of artists’ talks, video recordings (non-interactive) of electronic literature pieces, interactive renderings of electronic literature, and other related desktop pddublishing and office files.

Materials related to the conference proceedings media include the recordings from artists’ talks and sessions as well as recordings of some artists' installations. Material may partially duplicate that found on the conference proceedings media (RL01262-OP-0011 and RL01262-OP-0018), though may be easier to navigate in this structure.

Materials related to the festival's web presence include HTML and media files that were once hosted on the live web. As of 2015, the live version of the website is no longer online.
