On Boredom

Ben Vershbow at IF:Book launched a trumpet blast at Jeremy Ashkenas's Hypertopia, a web app for writing hypertext fiction, on the grounds that hypertext fiction is boring. I don't think they're serious: I think it's just a marketing ploy, a pose meant to discourage any investors Ashkenas might have or to try to convince him to drop out of their market space and go play games or something. Just business, in other words.
