The Epic continues
: Epic is a clever Flash saga about the future of news that every newsperson alive emails to fellow newspeople as if he or she were the first to discover it — and quickly, all those newspeople announce that they discovered it first. Well, let me be the first, second, or third to tell you that there’s now an epilogue in 2015 in which people start sharing GPS-tagged neighborhood broadcasts and after a
nuclear digital winter of news, new reporting sprouts up.
: I didn’t know that the original Epic — by Robin Sloan, now web genius blogger at Current.TV, and Matt Thompson — was inspired by an argument over the oft-emailed Pong speech by my friend and now colleague Martin Nisenholtz. If you haven’t read that, do.
