I’ve set up a page tracking what I’ve done and am doing on my distributed narrative project, which I’ve decided is going to be my big research project for the next year or two. Right now I’m writing an abstract to submit for Fibreculture’s upcoming issue on Distributed Aesthetics, which seems rather obviously right up my alley. I need to get up the courage to write a book proposal of it and send it in and see if I can get it published, you know, but I’ve conveniently decided I need to write a bit more first. Although I know you only need to send in an outline and a sample chapter. And the explanation of how important the topic is and how well the book will sell, of course.

I’d like to redesign the project page, and add an RSS feed so new blog posts on the topic go straight into it. I suppose I could make it a mini-blog of its own, or a one-person wiki, perhaps. But while that’d be cool, I think that’s mostly just a desire to procrastinate so I don’t have to actually write the stuff. Not now. It’s really pretty good just getting it out there at all, even with an old template.

    Jill is there an updated link for your tracking page? My MA thesis research is heading towards Distributed Narratives and your work is obviously very influential on my thinking for it.

Do people flock to talks about ChatGPT because they are scared?

Whenever I give talks about ChatGPT and LLMs, whether to ninth graders, businesses or journalists, I meet people who are hungry for information, who really want to understand this new technology. I’ve interpreted this as interest and a need to understand – but yesterday, Eirik Solheim said that every time […]
