Some Such Name
  Xanadu Responds!
I got back from a Diwali party, scared to open my mail, and I didn't. I went to sleep and then I woke up a few hours later, scared to open my mail. So, I made tea. Then I checked my mail.

I had a mail from Professor Ted Nelson. If you aren't aware of who he is, perhaps it is time. Anyway, he wrote:

Hi Rohit. Nice to hear from you again (that was you that wrote me
a couple of years ago, wasn't it)? I'm pleased that Larry Lessig steered you toward me. Congratulations on your journey toward the truth !-)

I've looked at your blog-noveland found the permission at the bottom.*ยง
It's not exactly transcopyright, since
- it relies on personal contact
- it's limited in quantity

The systems I'm working on (Transcopyright and Transliterature)
will I hope make these things a little simpler. Please watch my pages, which I hope will be better very soon.

I hadn't even dreamed that he would reply. Funnily enough, I don't remember writing to him a couple of years ago, and then again, I might have. I have written letters to so many people I admire, never expecting that they'd reply back. Only, secretly hoping...

yes tea. and correspondence. you continue to educate me, RG...incidentally, why scared?
tea-total-er, are u? ;-)
Thanx for the info on Prof Nelson.
anyways rg am curoius to know wat prompted u to start a blog-novel n go a step further n start a sms-novel
Every new form of media is an extension of man, which allows us to express ourselves in an entirely new fashio, and it allows us to express what was inexpressible before. The next decade will see a wild proliferation of blogs and mobile technology.

And I'm no fool:) - RG
