Ok. Another experiment this week. I’m not sure it works but I thought I’d give a hyperlink story a go. Urm, let me know what you think:

Tinman Day: Never forget
Posted by Dr Yoshi Takado
Well, it’s that time of the year again; it seems to have rolled around quicker this year. And I can’t help but notice that Tinman‘s death is not attracting the same media attention it did last year. Only to be expected but it makes me sad.
The cancer is pretty far advanced now and I’m told I don’t have long. It’s almost like my body is eating me up from the inside out, it is too fragile a vessel for all these secrets.
Just like me, I don’t know how long they’ll leave this up for but it’s all I have the strength to do. If just one person remembers, just one person gets it, then that will be enough.
That’s what he never understood.
Really enjoyed this Neil. I am left with the sense of a bigger story and I am full of questions.
I like this Neil. I think I’m going to have to read it again, just to take it all in. But I like it.
really interesting. To my mind, the only flaw is that each link is on the same Other Side of the River template, and the homogeneity spoils the effect a little bit. But I don’t expect you to build four new websites just for one piece of flash! Good story though.
Thanks guys, glad you liked it
Dan: I think this may become something larger, if it does it will almost certainly involve a fuller online installation. In its current form I’m not sure it fully gets to where I wanted to go.
If that makes any sense.
This is a really interesting piece, I like it a lot. You really nailed the Wikipedian tone in that substory!
Very nice, read it on the link from your post at Whatever, good work, i hope you expand it. My only crit is the bit about the UN and supersoldier fears in the wiki article didn’t work for me.
Thanks for dropping by Owen, and cheers for the feedback.
Oh, wow. I like it.
Thanks for a great little read. 🙂
