"A Talk with George Kubler" - originally published in Artforum magazine, Volume XII, No. 2 (October, 1973), page 32-34. Reprinted in Studies in Ancient American and European Art: The Collected Essays of George Kubler, edited by Thomas F. Reese, Yale University Press, 1985.
"Henry Flynt Interview (16 March 1979)" - I met Henry in the mid-1970s and began visiting him regularly at his apartment in New York just to talk. As he became more relaxed and forthcoming, I asked if I could record some of our conversations. He agreed and this is nearly all of our first recording. However, with no plan to publish, I put the cassette aside and soon forgot about it. I recently rediscovered it while looking for something else and as it provides an extremely revealing and concise overview of Henry's thinking about his life and work, I transcribed it. I sent Henry a copy and he had no objection to its being published -- indeed it is probably his best interview -- but we have not yet found a print venue for it. Please contact me if you are interested in publishing it.

"Balkan Media Network: Final Report" (January 1996). The ZaMir network connected the warring republics of Yugoslavia from 1992 to 1996 with email service. ("ZaMir" means "for peace" in Serbo-Croatian.) During the long siege of Sarajevo, ZaMir was that city's only ongoing link to the outside world. Humanitarian aid agencies like the UN and the Red Cross used it, along with hundreds of journalists and NGOs and thousands of ordinary people. This was my final report to the sponsors, who knew ZaMir as the Balkan Media Network.
