Welcome to the latest virtual reincarnation of digitalsouls.com — as a WordPress site.
Reincarnations of digitalsouls.com include its first online appearance as a collection of simple html pages (1997-2000). In 2001, the site saw a new reincarnation as a PHP reactor (2001-3). This virtual reincarnation was followed by a very successful life as a PHP Nuke. During its life as a PHP nuke, digitalsouls.com evolved and grew through multiple versions of that publishing platform (2004-2013).

The online work is part of Dr. Hugo’s Museums of the Mind.
