Fun with Penguin

I’m a big defender of long-form narrative and think that trying to find new ways to tell stories is all well and good, but those new ways are red herrings. In the digital age, publishers need to identify and protect what makes a book a book (and it’s not paper). Having said that, I love the new stuff as well and it’s cool to see someone like Penguin play around. Their “we tell stories” project tells six stories in six weeks using everything from google maps to blogs. Check it out here. (via Boing Boing)
