Connection doesn't have any branches in it, but I wanted to include it because it's mostly text and quite dynamic. Connection tells a story in the form of internet conversation between Ben and Zoe. If you've ever played Christine Love's Digital: A Love Story, you'll recognize the homages to vintage online communication (1988 BBSes vs. 2005 BlogSpot). From the author:
I’ve known her now, what, the last four or five years?
The technology, it’s improved leaps and bounds.
I mean, sometimes so rapidly, I wonder whether we know where or when we’ll stop racing forward with our phones and laptops raised to the skies.
And, yet, we’re still limited to exchanging our words to connect.
Those words we sent out across wires and satellites
across time zones and oceans
blindly hoping they would reach a pulse at the other end
the pulse we could know but not feel
the person we could see but not touch.
And I wonder if we’ve ever really known each other.
I wonder whether we’ve really connected.
There are no comments for Connection.
