Lots going on under the hood with the After Reading project.
- I have created my new Illogical Positivism comic strip. It is my first attempt at a comic strip, an experiment, something I will develop to tell a different story in After Reading. Illogical Positivism also helps me process the dramatic election result in the States. The strip has its own website. It should finish in December.
- I am currently in Las Vegas learning all about Amazon Web Services, Cloud architecture, and the clever little device, Amazon’s Alexa Dot. It is like Apple’s Siri but it is tied to a home-based speaker device. I have seldom used a phone based agent but I find Alexa very intriguing, especially because I can code new skills for it. This fits in with the machine life theme of After Reading. I have not mentioned it yet, but After Reading will be accompanied by many types of pieces, including code experiments.
- I have opened up the After Reading ebook site, but there is not much content yet. The content will always appear first in this blog, and the best content will find its home in the ebook, as indexed in its main page, the Table of Contents. After Reading is intended to start slowly in January and gradually pick up speed as I get the hang of it. Join me!
