Finnegans Wiki Read the book, read the annotations, annotate the book.

(This is the kind of thing Wikis were made for.)

  • Well that is very cool. A great use of technology. I managed with the help of a friend to hack my way through Ulysses while only losing half of my brain cells. (Come to think of it, Ulysses would benefit from a Wiki like this also).
  • "I shall have a word to say in a few yards about the acoustic and orchidectural management of the tonehall but, as ours is a vivarious where one plant's breaf is a lunger planner's byscent and you may not care for argon, it will be very convenient for me for the emolument to pursue Burrus and Caseous for a rung or two up their isocelating biangle."
  • Finnegan? Fine again. Oftwhile sKrik presentus elegante excell bananas.
  • Yes, nice. Thanks, Skrik.
  • "-- He shook he ashaped of hempshelves, hiding their shepe in his goat. And for rasembling so bearfellsed the magreedy prince of Roger. Thuthud. Heigh hohse, heigh hohse, our kindom from an orse!"

  • Actually, stuff like this makes me miss PF.
  • It looks like it is still being worked. Else the last chapter would connect to Page 3... "A way a lone a last a loved a long the" Finwake
  • this is cool skrik. i would prefer more "floaty annotations" over the hyperlinks, as i find clicking to and fro distracting from the text. i've been thinking for years about a hyperlinked, multimedia ulysses. maybe a wikified one is the way to go. wikysses anyone?
  • roryk -- something like this?
  • Enjombyourselves thurily!
  • wolof, yes, like that but with the ancillary information more closely linked or embedded with the text. my ideal delivery medium would be cd or dvd, to allow for lots of audio and video.
