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 10 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.

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.
Brilliant execution. Reminds of The Fish by Elizabeth Bishop.
