Oh No! A Term Project

Tagged:

I will print this out to bring in today as well.

I want nothing more than for this to be torn to pieces so the most prominent logical flaws will be solved, and I am sure, as you will see, you'll find many. Enjoy........................

I am settled on my premise, which is unfortunate as it is entirely preposterous. However, I assert emphatically that we live in an increasingly preposterous world, and there is nothing I aspire to more in creative writing than emphatic preposterousness.

term project

well, here is where i am with relation to my term project. it's changed a lot so far, and it'll probably change even more before all is said and done.

i have settled on the myth of arachne. for those of you who don't know it, here's a quick summary:

memex articles

The memex has been popping up in my mind recently as the msm likes to talk about these kinds of things. This New Yorker article and this Brooks' column pose the sames kinds of questions as Bush but don't offer any prescient solutions.

31337ist

In case you didn't check out my title, you should, because it is an example of why I disliked Lexia to perplexia. 31337 are numbers that are meant to represent the word "elite" and it is used on the internet along with other internet speak words like "pwn" and "n00b" to designate superiority. I only remembered the word "31337" because a guy I knew had it as his screen name and thoroughly enjoyed explaining to me what it meant.

writing machines, or a short lesson in typography

So I have always been very interested in art and design, but it hasn't been until fairly recently that I've started thinking about what that means for something to be a really good design, both aesthetically and functionally (also, I highly recommend everyone read Cradle to Cradle by William McDonough & Michael Braungart, a book about "remaking the way we make things" ).

What is a hypertext novel?

I was reading in "Writing Machines" about Phillip's art book that was created from Mallock's novel. In one part she writes (I'm looking for the quote now but I can't seem to find it) that Phillips said that if the novel sold well he could do 12 new pages and substitute them in the book so that the nth edition might not include any pieces from the original.

All's Fair in Love and War

Tagged:

I'm worried that the war part of the wiki is very text centered whereas the love part of the wiki is very link centered. my only worry is that the war one is setup for more growth right now... whereas the love one seems like a lot of the links are external so they sort of die (i guess?) and aren't easy to branch from. thoughts?

how do you read?

if new media authors are going to try to communicate in new ways, readers of new media are going to have to figure out how to understand in new ways also.
