Re: [BKARTS] BOOK_ARTS-L Digest - 28 Apr 2009 to 29 Apr 2009 (#2009-120)

As to how the question, "Is it a book", might apply to twitter, just google the phrase, 140 character novel, and you will find many references.

From the concept of tweeting a novel in serial posts, 140 characters at a time, "Twitter Novels: Not Big Success Stories Yet", found here


To the idea of tweeting a sort of flash fiction work in one post of 140 characters, a concept some have referred to also as Twaiku.

See, "TwitterNovel: Writing things (in 140 characters or less)"


Given the potential for creativity on twitter, I'd have to say that at some level, it definitely is, or can be a book.

Hmmmm. Let's turn it back to books. Aside from gender issues I don't want to
get into (Women are by far the largest group in this field), do emails (in a
laptop) or twittering constitute books?

Is "The Cloud" a book? <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ Cloud_computing> or
<http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hplXnFUlPmg>. We're in the cloud now,
sometimes even with our heads... ;-)
