This is a project that I think is really worth taking a good look at. I don’t think metadata is enough, it needs a place where humans, with their knowledge and preferences, can interact and build connections with the work, the wider culture and each other creatively. If Small Demons can be that place then it could be really thrilling. And we really need a digital place to browse, to mooch around looking for something interesting to click with, to be inspired by and to be challenged with. A digital place that can inspire this kind of feeling. I’d really like there to be a range of ‘storyverses’, because at present there is too much danger of a depressing lack of diversity becoming the new normal.
