New Meetup: Gentle Hacker's Literary Salon: The Mongoliad

Announcing a new Meetup for HacDC!

What: Gentle Hacker's Literary Salon: The Mongoliad

When: Tuesday, October 19,[masked]:30 PM

Where: HacDC
1525 Newton St NW
Washington, DC 20010

HacDC will continue the Gentle Hackers' Literary Salon series this month, discussing the new interactive/immersive/ongoing 13th century fiction project by Neal Stephenson and a team of collaborators, The Mongoliad.

The book/project is being published serially, so currently only the first three chapters are available to readers, with more being added each week. In addition, there's a user-collaborated wiki for the story, as well as a place, for lack of a better term, "user generated content" like fanfic, art, etc. Rumors are there's also a video game in development and more projects from the Mongoliad universe coming.

This should mean some interesting discussions both on The Mongoliad itself and the changing landscape of fiction in a socially networked age for the Gentle Hacker's Literary Salon.

As always at HacDC, light refreshments will be provided and the event is free and open to the public.
