Penguin and De Montford University are exploring a new literary experiment: a collaborative 'wiki-novel'. Based on Wikipedia technology, the online novel, A Million Penguins, is open to anyone to write it. None of the words, characters or plot twists will be attributed to any individual and participants will be free to edit and change other writers' work. Will the completed novel be any good? I don't know about that but the idea is so crazy it just might work. Who knows, maybe I'll try it out myself and see what happens. Anyone else plan on getting involved?
