I commented all over the place. Every now and again, someone had a post that blew my mind.
A small book with a ‘touch-screen’ paper interactive map.
First appeared in Return from the Stars by Stanislaw Lem in 1961.
Interactive Map… I forgot what your theme was for a second and tried, repeatedly, to click on that. Because I WANT IT. Wait, it’s 2016, and we have Kindle, tablets, smartphones, etc… and we STILL don’t have these? Especially for fantasy, sci-fi, and historical ebooks?
Someone get on this! NOW!!!
I want it. I need it. Now that the idea is in my head, I can’t imagine how we’re living without it.
Have you seen the Game of Thrones (tv show version) opening credits? Picture that happening every time the location changes while reading the book.
OMG OMG OMG.
Sorry, my comment has gone off the rails. WHY DOESN’T THIS EXIST???
I have some printed/real fantasy books with a map drawn in the front, which I’ve flipped back to in order to figure out the location being referenced by the characters. But imagine if I could just click the place name and a map would pop up when reading those books on Kindle.
Imagine reading Harry Potter with the Maurader’s Map at your fingertips on nearly every page.
I just geeked out so hard that there’s no going back.
Last year I moved to my blog to WordPress. During the challenge this year, I hit this milestone:
My mind is also blown in a less happy way.
I have a blogging friend who was once a frequent commenter. I commented on her blog as well. In March and April, I left comments but received none in return. Did I offend her without knowing it? There’s no indication of anger on the five posts of her blog that I’ve commented on in March and April. (No reply at all, in fact. But that’s not uncommon or just me.) I’ve seen her comment on many other blogs we both visited.
Perhaps she is just busy with new friends? Should I just shrug my shoulders and move on because this sort of thing happens all the time? Honestly, if it weren’t someone who I enjoyed comment-swapping with, I wouldn’t have even noticed.
If I’ve inadvertently offended you in the past seven weeks, please let me know. Thanks! -J
