I have this idea that somebody wrote something about the interface of hypertext fiction as a kind of narrator.

    This feels like Terry Harpold territory. He’s written about interface metaphors and narrative (though I’m not sure about interfaces-as-narrators).

They find that the Chinese machine vision imaginary is global, blue and competitive.  […]
