Wonderful read detailing all of the interesting things happening presently within the world of "text". Venkatesh Rao is easily turning into my favorite online writer.
All that is missing, is throwing in Readup, as a platform transforming the way we interact with text online..
I will tell you the truth, that Readup has fundamentally changed the way I read online. As I had never found myself, giving reading online the time of day before.
Great find! There were so many openings where Readup could fit in. Can't wait till we're part of the conversation.
I was also surprised to read that he was the author of the The Premium Mediocre Life of Maya Millennial. I read that years ago and loved it! Very memorable piece. I need to fix the author metadata scraping for his site asap.
