While the idea of serial, all-encompassing blog fiction fascinates me, it’s the tiny drops that have me coming back again and again. Like Oblivio’s find of an unsent email to a girlfriend several years ago. It’s likely to be fiction. It’s not really or necessarily part of a larger narrative. I know I can not read Oblivio for weeks and not have to catch up. Or I can spend hours reading the archives.

Non-committal reading. Should I worry that I like that? Or simply smile to know that un-committed as I am, I’ve actually been returning to Oblivio’s weblog every few days or weeks or months for a couple of years now. Some would call that loyalty.

    (put this post under erasure – “i didn’t blog this”: you see, no responses so far, and this one’s invisible, but I for one went and visited Oblivio’s blog which I would have never done if I hadn’t read your post. So, perhaps nine-tenths, or ninety-nine percent, of what happens in the blogs is invisible, just like this post, quite an iceberg you see, even if there are no comments).

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