Algolit is a workgroup around i-literature, free code and texts. It was initiated by Constant in 2012.

The group meets regularly following the principles of the Oulipo-meetings: they share work and thoughts and create together, with or without the company of an invitee. Algolit is open to anyone interested in exchanging practises around digital ways of reading and writing.
