CHANGING DELIVERY SYSTEMS
We're in the midst of drastic technological change transforming the way people receive their news and information-- and their culture also. One art has scarcely budged in response-- the insulated realm of literature.
Ten years ago I saw books and their big box delivery systems as on the edge of obsolescence. I still believe this. Aspects of the ULA campaign we never got to would've addressed this.
Those who'll prevail in the coming world will be those willing to rethink EVERYTHING.
The first step is to reinvent the art itself. It should be obvious to all that weighty and expensive scarcely-readable postmodern novels aren't designed to connect with 99% of the Twitter generation.
We can make new literary art that's readable and exciting-- and make it consciously ART at the same time.
