Lots more about e-poetry at ELO (Electronic Literature Organization, includes links to their collections 1 and 2) and The Electronic Poetry Center. Or try The Shape of a Box, a lit mag of poetry videos. And there have been at least three literary magazines on Twitter: Baby Trotsky, Form.Reborn, and Outshine.
Perhaps related in some way to digital literature, perhaps not: altered books / book-related-art by various book artists, Thomas Allen, Ellie Brown, Brian Dettmer, Zach Gage, Guy Laramie, Lori Nix, Robert The, Miriam Schaer, and Tona Wilson. Books that destroy themselves: Zach Gage's Antagonistic Books; self-blackening book by Camille Leproust and Andres Ayerbe. Steve Roggenbuck's rant video about Helvetica and more: INTRODUCTION TO TYPOGRAPHY: I'VE MURDERED, I'LL DO IT AGAIN.

*Netcessary literature is literature for which the internet is necessary. It is related to, but distinct from, flarf. I, Jessy Randall, invented the term in 2001 (see left-hand column). It has not taken off.
