            Kate Youngdahl, Director and Writer Facilities provided by Stone House Productions, South Norwalk, CT Recorded in 2000 The Mattatuck Museum, working with its African American History Project committee, investigated the history of an African American man enslaved in a Waterbury household in the 18th century. The museum is the caretaker for Fortune’s remains. This video introduces some of the team’s initial questions and methods. Over the next several years, the results of this study were presented in * an exhibit at the Mattatuck Museum * a website www.FortuneStory.org * a poem commissioned from Marilyn Nelson, Fortune’s Bones: The Manumission Requiem * a school curriculum on slavery in Connecticut developed by the museum’s teacher training institute.

              David Arnold Interdisciplinary Microsystems Group University of Florida Abstract This talk will highlight my group's development of microfabricated permanent magnets and their application in several functional microsystems. To set the stage, I'll first describe some basic concepts about magnets and physical scaling laws that motivate our efforts. I'll then discuss our advancement of two types of permanent magnet materials--electroplated layers and bonded powders, which overcome certain manufacturing and integration challenges. I'll then showcase how these permanent magnet materials are being used for electromechanical actuators, energy harvesting devices, and generation of high-energy x-rays. Biography David P. Arnold is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Florida and a member of the Interdisciplinary Microsystems Group. He received dual B.S. degrees in electrical and computer engineering in 1999, followed by the M.S. degree in electrical engineering in 2001, from the University of Florida. He received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2004. His research focuses on micro/nanostructured magnetic materials, magnetic microsystems, electromechanical transducers, and miniaturized power/energy systems. He is an active participant in the magnetics and MEMS communities, and currently serves on the editorial boards of /J. Micromechanics and Microengineering/ and /Energy Harvesting and Systems/. He has co-authored over 125 refereed journal and conference publications, and holds six U.S. patents. His research innovations have been recognized by the 2008 Presidential Early Career Award in Science and Engineering (PECASE) and the 2009 DARPA Young Faculty Award.

                      This interview of reader Matthew Kirschenbaum, conducted by Dene Grigar and Stuart Moulthrop, took place on Friday, January 31, 2014 at the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) at the University of Maryland as part of the Pathfinders project. We Descend, a hypertext novel authored by Bill Bly, focuses on the metaphor of an "archaeological dig." The story takes us through four timelines (five, if you count the timeline the reader represents), beginning with a future post-apocalyptic storyline of Edgerus who digs down through eons of data to reconstruct cultural history, encountering, along the way, writings by an ancient who calls himself the Last One. This recording is divided into two parts and focus on the historical and cultural experience of reading the work.
