JAY BOLTER is Wesley Chair of New Media at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He has published several books on new media and he works with new digital media forms, e.g. Storyspace, a hypertext authoring system, at the Augmented Environments Lab at Georgia Tech.
Bolter explores the use of the Argon browser in relation to dramatic experiences for games, art, entertainment and informal education. His collaborations in augmented reality experience design extend to Sweden, where he collaborates with Maria Engberg (Blekinge Institute of Technology) and Susan Kozel, Medea, Malmö university, among others.
