Fish: a tap essay
By Robin Sloan
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This is a short but heartfelt manifesto about the difference between liking something on the internet and loving something on the internet.
It's also an experiment in a new format, entirely native to the iPhone. This is a tap essay, unfurling its argument tap by tap, using bold typography, bright color, and a few surprises to make its case.
The essay takes about ten minutes to read; maybe less if you're fast. It's perfect for a coffee break or a train ride.
What's New in Version 1.1.2
+ Fixed the iPhone 5 display problem I, um, introduced with the last update.
+ God I am so unprofessional.
+ Further Prandtl-Glauert drive tuning.
Wonderful and unusual
Thought-provoking and makes a good, clear point about how people interact with current technology, especially social media, and the world. I highly recommend this.
When you lose your compass come back to this
Thought provoking. Imaginative meld of very very short essay and new media. You must read Robin's "Mr Penumbra's 24 Hour Book Store". Robin, we want more!!
I've clicked through this several times and don't plan on quitting anytime soon. Genius.
