We are publishing here materials from the ‘Typeform dialogues’ project carried out at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design, London, in 1994–8 and afterwards. This is the second edition of the document first published on this website in 2012. The main change in this new edition is the addition of essays by Eric Kindel (‘Eminents observed’) and Catherine Dixon (‘Systematizing the platypus’). As in the first edition, the document contains the User’s Manual for the CD-based interface, which was the project’s main focus, together with various supporting materials that describe the project. The work is edited by Eric Kindel, with contributions throughout from Catherine Dixon.
