Text Manipulation & Cut-up Technique Links

There are a lot of websites out there covering the Cut-up technique, especially with reference to William S. Burroughs and Brion Gysin. There are also a reasonable number of Cut-up engines and scripts, although some (for example, the one hosted by the now defunct NetMonkey online magazine, and Lee Worden’s Cut-up engine & website) have now sadly disappeared from the internet.
