maybe i shouldn't appreciate words too much eh?
anyway.. Neil Gailman (author of Stardust, Sandman series, American Gods), or @neilhimself on twitter.com, started an online interactive storytelling via Twitter.com few days ago and it is spreading real quick. he started his story with a short line :
Sam was brushing her hair when the girl in the mirror put down the hairbrush, smiled & said, "We don't love you anymore."
and the rest of the story will be up to you, me, ellen degeneres, anyone and everyone (who have twitter account).
so after about 1000 tweets.. the people at BBC Audiobooks America (BBCAA) will edit, compile and make an audiobook suppossedly free for download at their website.. or for purchase at iTunes.
when i first read about this yesterday.. they have already got to chapter 4 (in only two days!). i think this is a great idea.. a book (audiobook for this matter) something good that comes out of the internet. will it be a great story? possibbly not. but if it is good enough and one day someone decided to make a film out of it.. imagine how long the credits would be.. and imagine having your twitter username in it! pretty cool eh?
