Online collaborative fiction

Here’s an interesting experiment; Cory Doctorow writes:


Unwirer: an online, real-time exhibitionist sf story collaboration. Charlie Stross (who’s up for the Hugo, Neb and BSFA awards this year!) and I are collaborating on our third story together, working title “Unwirer.” And we’re doing it online.
We’ve set up a Movable Type blog for the collaboration. You can read along as we write, rewrite and discuss the story as we work our way through it. I think this might be a net-first — an act of auctorial exhibitionism that no one has ever attempted before.

We’re going to be updating the site daily, more or less, and we hope to have the story done in about a month.
