d PlsUR of d Txt.
d PlsUR of d Txt is a conceptual work where a work by Roland Barthes called The Pleasure of the Text has been translated into text messaging language. This process was undertaken with the aid of a peer-to peer online database called transl8it.com. In this online space textese users share their latest linguistic creations, something that in turn has been reciprocated at the close of the translation here, allowing a new generation of textese to enter open source.
“There are many different types of intelligence and this book aims to confuse anyone who holds on to our dusty, outdated academic assumptions. This book is an attempt at an Esperanto equivalent for our differing intelligences."
