Tool For Thought « Battle Of The Sexes, cont. | Main | DevonThink Continued » January 29, 2005 Tool For Thought This week's edition of the Times Book Review features an essay that I wrote about the research system I've used for the past few years: a tool for exploring the couple thousand notes and quotations that I've assembled over the past decade -- along with the text of finished essays and books. Writing Interactive Fiction With Twine (Melissa Ford) A curious and fascinating thing about Melissa Ford’s Writing Interactive Fiction with Twine is how it combines hypertext craft advice and Twine syntax tutorials with design expectations largely derived from parser-based interactive fiction. This is a 400 page book about Twine fiction whose index lists Anna Anthropy once (in a passage discussing how she did geographical description in one of her games) and Porpentine never — though it does refer, without attribution, to the tiny Twine jam Porpentine ran. Steve Meretzky and Brian Moriarty appear, but not Michael Lutz or Tom McHenry or A. DeNiro or Caelyn Sandel or Dietrich Squinkifer, nor Michael Joyce or Shelley Jackson or other luminaries from the literary hypertext tradition either. The book has early and prominent chapters about how to design puzzles, inventory, and a room layout; fonts, text transitions, and CSS effects come quite a bit later, despite being much more common than inventory systems in practice.
How to Migrate WordPress website? There are times when there is a need to move blogs from one WordPress site to another. One common reason is when changing website hosts. However, keep in mind that you need to keep the slugs to those blogs as close as you can to the originals. It is ideal to move blogs only when moving the site they are on to a new host. Publishing the blogs on another website when they are already published can result in some search engine optimization problems.

Note-Taking Jujitsu, Or How I Make Sense Of What I Read — A Different Place All this isn’t to say paper copies don't have their uses. But some books just aren't available in digital format. I'll get into the workaround for that later. The best way to make this less of a problem is to gently nudge publishers to issue their books on a kindle format.1 But I am already getting off track. Creating Interactive Choose Your Own (Google) Adventure Stories A fond childhood memory of mine was going to the library once a week to check out some of my favorite types of books – the Choose Your Own Adventure series. They were created by Edward Packard and were very popular in the 1980s and 1990s. While the books are less popular today, the legend lives on in digital formats that are always appealing to students.
10 open source software tools for developing IoT applications The Internet of Things is turning into something of a nebulous concept, as more and more devices enjoy connected status it’s become more difficult to draw a line in the sand between what does and does not constitute as an IoT device.

Secret Agent Cinder 3 of 3 people found the following review helpful: A neat reimagining, September 12, 2015Secret Agent Cinder recasts the classic heroine as a spy infiltrating the ball in a stealth mission. Accompanying are nicely drawn comics that take the place of elaborate descriptions. Some text is provided, but is spare and utilitarian. This game has a lot of neat tricks and does more with the images to supply necessary information than normal illustrated stories do. The map and occasional orientation can be a tad confusing, but otherwise this is a unique and novel Twine with loads of personality that would have been a great IFComp entry.
