SmartMonsters title is "Poobah". Er, that is,
Lead Technology Guy. Something like that.
Mark's a somewhat semi-known writer of arty-farty experimental
his main effort, his other writing has been widely
Mark's believes that multi-user role-playing games are
a form of
halfway between Pynchon
and Star Trek's Holodeck. His goal for SmartMonsters is to
contribute to the definition of the medium's characteristic
forms and vocabularies. Try saying that ten times fast: if

To pay the rent he's a technology guy, currently working for a
software company in Silicon Valley.
