- Ellie Nichol for permission to publish the .DSK and other files
on the Web.
- Geof Huth for keeping his 5.25" copy of First Screening readable for 22
- Dan Waber and Jason Pimble for recovering the
complete version of First Screening from Geof Huth's 5.25" floppy
bpNichol distributed under the Underwhich imprint.
- J. B. Hohm for permission to publish the HyperCard version of
- The University of Victoria Computing Services—especially
Jeff Rivett—for recovering the .DSK files from old 5.25" floppies
from the 80's that Lionel Kearns safely saved for all these years. This
was the first DSK we recovered (in 2004). That turned out to be an incomplete
version of First Screening; bpNichol must have given these disks
to Lionel while
First Screening was in progress.
- Tony Power of Simon Fraser University in Vancouver for his attempts
(though unsuccessful) to recover First Screening from a 5.25" floppy
mysteriously labelled “Master Disk” in the SFU archive of bpNichol's
- Three of the essays originally published in this project were later
published in the spring 2008 issue of Open Letter on bpNichol guest edited
by Lori Emerson. The introductory essay, "First Meaning: The Digital
Poetry Incunabula of bpNichol" by Geof Huth and "Off Screen Romance"
by Jim Andrews were in that issue of Open Letter which also included
a new essay by Dan Waber who also did the Open Letter cover.
