Linux Faithful Author Writes Novel Entirely In Tweets

QUOTE
He doesn’t just use Ubuntu either.  Piers is a Fedora user and he prefers the KDE desktop.  He takes full advantage of multiple workspaces and has designed a complete work-flow based on that environment.  …Somehow he still manages to get by with dial-up, but I think that’s just the nature of stubborn old men.


QUOTE
Follow Piers on Twitter and keep up with the story for yourselves.  @PiersAnthony

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

What a concept! Scifi fantasy author tweets a novel! How cool is that! Started reading it...I like that!

Now will have to see about getting it in real novel form when it's completed! LOL!

All caught up.  I went to his Twitter feed, scrolled down to the beginning and started reading up to the latest entry.  From now on, I'll be following via RSS feed.

Both feeds worked in FF on both os's but then the 7  feed went away. Reccon it is a FF thing rather than a 7 thing.

I have PA1 and PA2 copied to file if anyone would like to catch up. Am up to episode 86 in PA3.

Guess I'll have to read them one day instead of just copying and pasteing. :fish:
