@Calhistorian i’m glad you’re interested in this as well. i’ve been meaning to publish my book on play online to take advantage of the possibilities beyond the scope of physical books. however, i find even online books are as limiting with pdf/epub/kindle formats. in terms of hypertext, there’s the magic of back-linking which i’m experimenting with (digital gardens). here’s my first experiment though I’m also playing with creating a digital garden inside my ghost blog and waiting for Obsidian’s custom domain iteration.
if you’re still looking for more like me, here are some resources you might like to play with:
Joel Dueck’s Notebook
On Chatting and Thinking
Why We Interface
web publishing toys like
and non-linear toys for (choose your own adventure) style narratives
i-Docs for multi-perspectival thinking
Nonlinear Narratives with Story Curves
i think I took y’all down a crazy rabbit hole. i personally have no idea where I’m going with all of this yet. i just want my storybook on play to read like Alice in Wonderland on LSD.
p.s. replace *toys with tools (i’m play obsessed so projects-> games, tools-> toys, collaborators-> playmates, communities/cults-> playgrounds)
