How to be an Internet Artist (website link)

How To Be An Internet Artist is an online concept art ebook by Mark Amerika, one of the most-celebrated digital artists of our time. This eclectic mix of pseudo-autobiographical fictions explores many of the themes generated in Amerika's internationally-exhibited net art, including hypertextual consciousness, cyborg-narrators, reality hacking, and creating on-the-fly stories via an ongoing practice of surf-sample-manipulate.
Bio
Amerika was a Creative Writing Fellow and Lecturer on Network Publishing and Hypertext at Brown University where he developed the GRAMMATRON project, a multi-media narrative for network-distributed environments. The opening section to what was supposed to be a novel called GRAMMATRON was published in the Penguin USA Avant-Pop anthology entitled After Yesterday's Crash [edited by Larry McCaffery]. By the time this Penguin USA excerpt was published, Amerika was already well on his way to creating a storyworld that has since been released on the Internet and praised by many media sites including The New York Times, MSNBC's The Site, Reuters International, Die Zeit, Wired, The Village Voice and Time-Warner's Pathfinder. Exhibitions of GRAMMATRON have taken place or are forthcoming at the Ars Electronica Festival, the International Symposium of Electronic Art, SIGGRAPH, the Museums On The Web "Beyond Interface" show, the Adelaide Arts Festival "FOLDBACK" show in South Australia, the Virtual Worlds conference in Paris, and the International Biennial of Film and Architecture in Graz.

GRAMMATRON has just been selected as one of the first works of Internet art to be exhibited in the prestigious Whitney Biennial of American Art.
