Excerpts from “Writing for Interaction”
We do not yet have robust tools for creating interactive reading experiences…The promise of location-aware books (http://bit.ly/Z9AOTt) suggests one way in which books can provide more interaction, but they have yet to become widespread.
While I wouldn’t argue that we should ignore the value of traditional texts, the growing availability of tools–like location-aware books–make writing for interaction possible, and thus something we would prepare for…True writing for interaction will begin to follow the model of complex, story-driven video games, where a player’s actions within the larger narrative determine how the story develops
