The Shapes of Stories by Kurt Vonnegut via Kami Garcia




I spent my last months at Know Your Meme dumping viewcount and pageview data into Gephi, convinced that there were repeatable shapes to “meme” spread (there were and there are, I just ran out of time before I could get a bunch of brains together to figure out what any of it meant.)
And recently, I’ve been thinking quite a bit about Matt Locke’s Audience Shapes — the idea that there are distinguishable ‘shapes’ to tv viewing behavior.
So it’s reaffirming to see that someone like Vonnegut was thinking the same way, sensing patterns where they couldn’t be seen. I am not alone in my madness.
