Jill Walker has assembled a very useful list of email narratives. Many of them have unfortunately been lost to the archivists.
Also of note: There's a very good profile of Bob Coover and Talan Memmot in the Brown Alumni Magazine.
On my to-interact-and-teach-IF-with-list: Dead Reckoning: Nick Montfort translated Olvido Mortal by Andrés Viedma Peláez from Spanish to English. Olvido Mortal, a short adventure in Inform, won the 1st Place Prize for Best Adventure in the I Premios Hispanos a la Aventura (First Spanish Adventure Awards) and also won the Estatuilla de Dragón for Best Adventure in the I Concurso Aventuras Breves del CAAD (First Short Adventure Contest of CAAD).
Speaking of Spanish, the conference on my I-deserve-a-trip-to-Europe-gosh-darn-it-list is CIBERaRT in Bibao, April of next year. Hope I can make that trip.
