_:terror(aw)ed patches:_

A Google Wave(let) Transformation by Shane Hinton + Netwurker Mez, 2009

Title: _:terror(aw)ed patches:_

URL: http://non-playercharacter.com/?p=43

Description: Shane Hinton + Netwurker Mez create a new method of collaborative fiction through _live concurrent editing_ in Google Wave. This process results in expressive output[s] termed "Transformations":

"Google Wave uses an algorithmic variation of “operational transformations” [live concurrent editing] which occur through a process called transformation:

Transformation relies on continual modification...This accent on process acts to rewire the notion of documents as statically defined “objects” and [by proxy] any information contained within. This has enormous implications in regards to such institutionally-governed categories such as literacy, media, the professional/amateur divide, narrative, and information construction."

Feedback appreciated.
