Patrick Herron (http://patrickherron.com) is a poet, artist and information scientist from Chapel Hill, NC, USA. His doll Lester is the author of _Be Somebody_ (2008, Effing Press), about which Pultizer winner Ron Silliman wrote, "Like somebody who understands that what makes Moby Dick great is all that stuff about whales, Be Somebody is difficult in the way the very best books are." Patrick is the author of several books of poetry including _The American Godwar Complex_ (2004, BlazeVox) as well as a recent book on the relationship between text mining and scientific discovery in medicine (2008, Verlag Dr. Mueller). He is now working on a new volume of poetry tentatively entited _Embedded_. Patrick's work has appeared in the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum and his _proximate.org_ (http://proximate.org) was the first new media poetics site added to the permanent collection of the New Museum for Contemporary Art. You may find some of Patrick's poems and essays in print and online journals such as _The Exquisite Corpse_, _Jacket_, _Fulcrum_, _Fanzine_, _A Chide's Alphabet_, and _Talisman_. He is the founder of the Carrboro International Poetry Festival, a member of the board of Carolina Wren Press, winner of the 2005 Triangle Arts Award from _The Independent_ (Durham NC), and a former Carrboro NC Poet Laureate. Patrick teaches new media studies, develops serious games (http://virtualpeace.org), and studies global innovation networks for the Jenkins Chair at Duke University.
