Now everyone come equipped with "smartphone" it's not as bad outside, not stared at quite so
much, everyone walking while enraptured with their little "smart" devices -- they can send
electric messages! through the invisible networks! to their friends! they've friends! and,
I am not equipped with "smartphone" though I have observed one, and know about those "apps"
-- they, they do things, electrical, and invisible margins where the work occurs, I think.
I have thought of some "apps" myself.
1(one) idea of 1(one) "app": Fact -- people compulsively take photos of little cats
wheresoever they graciously appear -- utilising "smartness" the "app" will remember the
little cats: their outward form, where they were when photographed, and start compiling a
database of the little cats and their entanglements, i.e. family resemblances / thus when
re-encountering a little cat, the "smart" "app" power will alert the user, enable tagging,
etc etc, you surely get the idea -- and to form shared networks of the same cats over the networks
intangible connections and eventual family trees of all little cats snared in app database
second idea of one "app": trees are nice aren't they. Take photo of nice trees. Trees
don't move much do they. "smartness" looks for other photos of same tree, in the past, and if
possible, in the future, and the relative present (different angles an so on) -- suggests
familial relations to other trees, teaches what sort of tree, what life-forms enjoy this
tree, what may the tree become, what the tree maybe was, what a tree is, where are you and
where it is, you will enjoy resonance, with, without, tree(s) -- your own holy "smart"
forest, awaits, "app" second end of second "app"
Last "app" from position of no-hope -- or, a way of enticing people to read novellas --
seems a cruel thing to do, forgive me, but: method:
a) tag-team conjoined champions "writer(1)" &
"editor(1-to several is conceivable)" TAG choice sentences/phrases from 1(one) novella (one for now,
at start of this venture) some sentences/phrases may be TAGged independently by both writer and editor, and the
reader selects what interests from the floating TAG field cloud
b) when, then, option to read the paragraph within which the selected sentence/phrase sits, or patch of said paragraph -- the "surroundings" of the phrase/sentence, becomes itself selectable, to be read, further on, the page itself, later, the chapter/section itself
c) and various paths into the work are opened formed by initial interest of reader, and option to have the entire novella, for free, why not (donations possible)
/ and traces of introductory "induction" path can be accessed for nostalgia-purpose etc / share, compare, the paths / it is somewhat similar to first of all reading a literary essay and finding in it interesting quotes, citations of a work, a work that you then head towards / it depends on initial reader interest though not that the "first page" be the "hook" etc as tired "advice" says, demands, that must be, I say "no more" / eventual good interested reader the veteran reader has sentences/phrases/ patchwork extractions from many such novellas a legend-class stock of tagged paras and etc to in app-form perhaps can float interact make music like electroplanktons! and swap need got with the burgeoning masses of enthused reader-adventurers
/ thus born from third app as suggested by me
/ and I offer 4th little book/novella for sacrifice/experiment/autopsy-able corpse to-be
