AP Adopts Firefox's 'Do Not Track'; Others On the Way

farlukar Re:I wasn't worried about the good actors... (80 comments)

"Lost" and the Emergence of Hypertext Storytelling

farlukar Re:Right. (170 comments)

What is perhaps interesting is that Lost has a lot more popular appeal than the examples I quote above, so maybe this type of storytelling is becoming more appealing to the average TV viewer?

"Lost" and the Emergence of Hypertext Storytelling

farlukar Re:Right. (170 comments)

Because nobody ever told stories with large amounts of flashback before the advent of hypertext.

But if you tie it to a fancy buzzword, it's all new and exciting!
