|This paper analyses codeworkthe
use of the idiolect of the computer and computing processes in new media
experimental writing, or [net.writing]as a general practice that foregrounds
and theorizes the relations between interface and machine and emphasizes
its own inscription and mediation. It addresses the codework of "netwurker"
Mez, which borrows text from email lists and chat settings and refashions
it into a hybridized neologistic language used for composition. The paper
also addresses the principle of interference in Mezs codework in relation
to issues of lexical, stylistic, and architectural minimalism.
