"Daily" Diversions: Choose Your Own Postmodern Adventure submitted by: kid dexterity

ergon / logos is a unique diversion that you'll find either engrossingly compelling or irritatingly boring.

An odd hybrid of interactive game, postmodern art, static narration and teasing animation, ergon / logos has you follow a narrative thread - almost literally, as the text scrolls through a dark void, acting as your guiding string through the labyrinth - until you reach a point where you can choose the next thread to take in the story's progress. You don't have much time to deliberate, however, as the dissonant, cacophonous music drives the story forward regardless, and will make the choice for you if you can't decide yourself in time.

The text itself is by no means the great American novel, and often reads more like the word salad of the deranged or delusional, but combined with their visual presentation and the sense of urgency the music provides, you may find it oddly compelling. If you're not immediately turned off by it's off-kilter presentation, ergon / logos has two "levels" to explore.

The wife is watching 'Lost' now, but I am off all day tomorrow and can devote some time.

Where are you finding these things?

Random bits of Internets I've come across since quitting World of Warcraft.
