if:book Australia just wrote and edited then published electronically and in print a book in just 24 hours! Why? Because they could and because it would be fun to do. I totally agree! The nine invited writers met at the State Library of Queensland at noon on the 11 June and began writing. As they did the work was posted online and people were encouraged to get involved and offer suggestions and so on. Once written, the editorial team got to work and produced the book which was published the following day at noon, making it a book from who to go in 24 hours.
I am sure this is a candidate for the Guinness Book of World Records and I am itching to break the record! Watch this space as I might see if I can whip up the Rorschach School of Writers to see if we can do it in 12 hours! Fun aside, this is a worthy demonstration of the power of the technology we are so fortunate to share. The Internet is surely the next best thing to the alphabet and the best thing in writing since Gutenberg and his printing press!
