I just today got wind of an... alternate-reality fiction shared thing. My discussion is at http://gameshelf.jmac.org/2008/10/alter ... ction.html . The more I've learned about it, the more I thought of Uru.

It's got ARG elements: web sites, blogs, a Twitter feed. I'm not really sure what-all it's got, because it's launching slowly. More stuff is supposed to appear tomorrow (Oct 9).

It's got something to do with multiple worlds, and contact between the civilizations in them. One of them is ours.

It's multimedia -- perhaps only text at first, but open to visual art and music and whatever people want to bring to it.

It's explicitly open-source (creative common licenses everywhere) and invites full audience participation.

Whatever's going on with this thing, the creators are not afraid of participatory creation, and they're not afraid of "chaos".
