There’s a story on mobile literature in the NY Times, taken from the International Herald Tribune which fortunately doesn’t require registration, and they mention Media Republic‘s mobile phone soap opera Jung-Zuid, complete with well-known stars and so on. I can’t read Dutch, but the company’s working on an Australian version to be called “My Way”. Vodaphone and Twentieth Century Fox have teamed up to produce a “mobile drama” version of the TV series 24, to be offered in one minute video segments to mobile phone customers in 23 countries starting next month.

    Have you read “Pattern Recognition” by William Gibson? I would assume you would have, but I keep forgetting that we’re in different countries. There’s a real nice kind of grafitti distributed rendered film subplot in that book. Very cool.

    I loved Pattern Recognition. Well, the first half of it, anyay, the second half wasn’t as brilliant, I thought, though I still enjoyed it. It was Pattern Recognition set me off on the distributed narrative stuff in the first place 🙂
