I’m going to talk about Wikiality & Journeys Into The Surreal. Or less pretentiously put, I wonder how many lies you can tell someone before they actually stop believing you.
Since stumbling across the ideas of Truthiness and Wikiality thanks to the genius of Stephen Colbert, I have been both amused and fascinated by the border between fact and fiction. Throw in a smattering of Algorithmic Authority and dash of Historiography and I have been somewhat mind-sploded.
And so, I’m hoping to unpick all these bullshit words and explore the idea that the web is the greatest canvas a storyteller could ever be given to take us on a demented yet believable journey of real, unreal, fantasy or truth. I hope.
I'm Eliot. I like life, its great. Whoever invented it deserves a knighthood. Private account, but please feel free to knock on the door. bio from Twitter
