is a continuing non-edited, non-supervised flow of writing in the Public
Domain on one subject: the Cell Phone or Mobile Phone. It's an experiment in
minimal collaborative writing using public software.

It is called Cellular Writing because it is about cell phones and because it
started off in the WVU Wryting-L mailing-list on writing and theory of
writing, as a discussion on the subject.

It is on Cell Phones because it is called Cellular Wryting.

From there it came to you, now, and you can do some cellular writing too.

Here's the INIT:

. There's a collage of sorts of fragments and pomes at
(WVU WRYTERS: please mail me backchannel for

. there's a blog at http://cellularwryting.blogspot.com/ that you can
contribute to just by sending e-mail to it, see
http://www.vilt.net/nkdee/cellular_wryting.jsp#contribute for how that works

. writing can be anything. Text, poems, movies, sounds, whatever. Up here,
it's all just code anyway. So you can send in anything that gets through the
Blogger interface. Most of the time, I'd prefer your things to be beautiful,
interesting, well crafted and above all, poetical, but who am i?

. you can use the blog's contents as an RSS feed on your own websites/blogs,
there's a code snippet at the end of this mail that you can use for that
purpose, or you can 'Burn' and customize your own feed at www.feedburner.com
(yep that's bought by our lovely EGOLOG too). The Cathedral file's just an
example of how to do that, encouraging you to do that, so why don't you do

. please edit this text as you see fit and sent it out to where and whom you
see fit.
Whatever you do, do not post the email address of the blog to a public file.
The spam might stop the flow, then, and there's no reason for that to
happen, is there?

Let there be writing.
