217 Babel
 
For the last few weeks I've been working on creating a site called 217 Babel. It's launched today.

This is a collaboration with the novelists Susanna Jones, Alison MacLeod and Jeff Noon. 217 Babel is a piece of fiction that will continue to develop over the next few months.

This is a first run, so I'd really be grateful for any feedback on the feel of it, especially on how easy you find it to navigate through the pages...

Oh, that's too too clever!

Yes, it feels and looks very nice, a sort of Geoff Ryman's 213 (homage in the name?) meets Perec's Life A User's Manual.

Proofreading pedant writes: In Damien's story, shouldn't it be Knit 1, Purl 1, not Knit 1, Pearl 1...? Or is that deliberate?

We didn't discover 213 until after we'd started, oddly. But the Perec is definitely an influence.

Er... yes.. that was deliberate. :oops:

Thanks for spotting that, JS.

Um, is it just me?...

I can't get beyond the front page and random links to author's webpages when I click on the 217 Babel logo.

You probably have the old front page in your cache... If you clear your cache you should be able to see the new one.

I'm sure you're right. But umm, how do I clear my cache? :oops:

If you're using Internet Explorer, go to Tools > Internet Options, and under Temporary Internet Files, click Delete Files.

This is very good, wshaw, and I can see where the stories will keep meeting, growing, and intertwining ad infinitum. The buzzer and foyer is very clever!
