more about the internet

two links of note that I found the day after writing my last post.

1. How Novels Came to Terms With The Internet – This amazing article by Laura Miller does a wonderful job explaining the way new novels explore the internet and the new world it’s created.

2. 11 Awkward Things About Email – This is hysterical and true.  This is also probably why some people don’t even attempt writing about emails etc in fiction.  There’s way too much subtext to even try to unpack in a novel when everyone’s already probably failing to interpret real-life conversations and body language.

Feel free to suggest more!
