A little commitment here

Looking for something a little more involved: something I can understand quickly, but will take some time to unravel. These will take anywhere from several hours to several weeks to read.

My Marble Springs, Disappearing Rain, and E:Electron (with Geoffrey Gatza) and Princess Murderers (with geniwaite) are at this level.


webshelf clockWebshelf by time: Most hypertext/electronic/new media works have a hidden time commitment--and so I tried to organize these in terms of the time it will take to see what is going on--not to understand the whole work. Some of these, particularly in my first category, can be seen and thoroughly "grokked" quickly. Others can be seen quickly and not grokked in a lifetime. Saying you can read this in an hour is like saying you can read T.S. Eliot's the Wasteland in an hour. Yes, you can but it isn't all that is there. So this is just a way to let you know up front what you might want to look at given your time constraints. It is by no means a description of how long to spend with a work.
