Trapped in the Internet’s Liminal Spaces

So somewhere, somehow, the logic around these emails continues to churn out message after message. And they arrive in my Inbox. But the messages themselves are broken and malformed. And there’s no way for me to stop this process.

The project seems to have been long abandoned, but the rules and logic and infrastructure around the project’s inception seems to continue, unabated.


The McKinnon Account: An Experimental Short Story Told Over Email (and Time)

“This is a small experiment in creating something that feels immersive and real-time, but doesn’t require nor allow any true interaction.

So: completely passive but it feels like something interactive.”


Wait… What is That? Is That Someone Singing?

After having been away for a week on vacation, I came back to the office and went about things as usual: logged in, fired up my email (Outlook), browsed the web a bit.
