The team has completed implementing ruffle.js to all of the 231 Flash works in the anthologies and online journals held in the Electronic Literature Organization’s repository. The last journal, The Iowa Review Web (TIRW), was completed over the weekend by Andrew and Arlo. 8 of 33 works from the journal could be preserved, amounting to a 28% success rate. This number is in keeping with our efforts with the other publications we have tried to preserve with this approach.

We have not yet tackled the two Showcases, Turbulence and The Museum of the Essential and Beyond That or the many works in the Individual Artists and Scholars collections. We need to turn our attention for the next month to the afterflash exhibition that opens at the end of May at the Electronic Literature Organization’s The NEXT in conjunction with the ELO’s 2021 conference.
