I got to blog lonelysandwich’s work today! It made me feel alive!
Reading a book no longer stops at the last page, thanks to a new way to envision the Storyverse.
Which leads me to my next question — why is Small Demons better than just Googling something?
Ease of use, context, and connections…We have hard boundaries at Small Demons — the universe of the site starts and ends with stories — for a very particular reason. Any path you follow starting from any topic on the site will lead you ultimately to a story, a book… So while Google and Wikipedia may satisfy an immediate “tell me what this is” impulse, what we’re far more interested in is “show me the story where I saw this and everything else it relates to.” Along the way we also provide information about “what this is,” most usually drawn from Wikipedia and Freebase. But the connections are what’s unique to us (…).
