A podcast on remarkable digital media
Ep. 2: The New York Times Snow Fall
Episode 2: The New York Times Snow Fall. Nine years ago, the New York Times published a landmark multimedia feature by John Branch. This story ended up becoming one of the most influential articles in the history of interactive media.
This episode was recorded over a year ago. Some of the references may seem odd or out of place.
Ep. 1: The Silent History
Episode 1: The Silent History is a remarkable piece of work. Originally published in serialised form in 2012-13, it imagines a near-present generation of children born lacking any facility for speech or, by extension, communication of any kind. The form - daily instalments delivered to a subscriber's tablet/phone was not especially radical, rather the considered form of the app, and the potential for reader contribution enables it to stand out as a piece of digital-first literature. It is also the only entry Tom wrote solo for the Encyclopedia of Science Fiction.
