Here's something else that gets to me: where are the online publishers willing to publish the really big, crazy work? The ones that heard "nobody reads anything long on the Internet" and laughed their asses off?
Where are the online publishers who reward big, weird experiments?
Where are the online publishers, in other words, who will post something that doesn't fit into their blog's template?
Seems as if there must be places like this, and certainly there are adventurous publishers, but I guess I'd like to see more.
For what it's worth, if we get a great experimental crazy wild thing, Uncanny Valley will find a way to make it seen, online or off.
