On Monday I turned in The Magician’s Land, well and truly and for good. After they copy-edit your book you get one last shot at it: they print out the typeset pages, and you can mark them up in red pencil. It’s like your last vacation with somebody you really like but who you know is about to break up with you.

This might be naive... but it makes sense to my simple end-user mindset that FoxOS be a real alternative to Chrome OS. With real mobile integration. 

Perhaps I am missing something?

Ahh yes, storytime. Let me just strap on this vest and bust out my LED lit book and be completely immersed... in all this distracting hardware.

Yes this is an interesting idea.

Why it is problematic : I don't see many people dropping their sensory simulation vest in a shoulder bag--or busting one out mid-transit on the subway... and not wanting to miss out on the "full experience" they'll probably off-put just reading the fancy LED "book".

The reason the book--analog or digital--works is because it is portable, modular and effortless. Just as walking is effortless when we forget about our walking technology (shoes, or maybe slippers) and the tech (naturally) goes with us.

Besides in a good piece of storytelling my lungs compress just fine and my heart rate increases without help. Trying to time to figure out what is meaningful when for every reader is abysmal to attempt.

I am more interested in transmedia storytelling -- converging/balancing multiple mediums (audio, lingual, visual, interactive) that take advantage of existing, portable, modular tech (e.g., a soundtrack or atmosphere track accompanying a written/illustrated book).

Perhaps a more subtle piece of tech (e.g., wristband or google glass) could be tapped to augment a storytelling experience. For immersion to happen the tech must dissappear.

Let the storytellee choose their level of immersion (naturally) and the storyteller(s) focus on the craft.

I've been looking for a notebook for a while to draft ideas in.  I think that I've finally found the right one.  

"Once you’ve filled your notebook, mail it back to us .  We scan and digitize it for free within 5 days.  Enjoy your notes from anywhere in our beautiful Mod app. Start your next notebook, and let the love continue." - Mod Notebooks Website

The notebooks are from a start-up called Need/Want.  I've been following the progress from +Marshall Haas for a while now.  Congratulations and I'm glad to see that Draft finally made it!

Story
Tagline
I write while Death rubs my shoulders and pours me another glass of Gin.
Introduction

"One day I will end" is where I begin.


Adjunct arbiter of absurd word interplay. I read, I write, I drink. I am minimalist, I don't count my socks. I am atheist; I don't worship the state (or satan). I am free-market, libertarian-anarchist, I still pay my taxes.

All the polarized people gone? Great, let's have a drink and conversation.

Bragging rights
I don't need to be drunk to see three of everything.
