So this morning I quickly pulled together this Storify on the Black Ops II reveal. It includes the trailer, all the official promo videos, IGN trailer breakdown, four articles examining the announcement and a bunch of people’s reactions to the news on Twitter. Have a look and see what you think.
“But the other thing, the conversation that I don’t ever hear — the single object versus the single object; Kindle versus the book. I have this very, very intense, lifelong relationship to the roomful of books. And the idea of walls of these objects. Rooms that are given over to them – libraries, bookstores, or personal collections. And I don’t hear this description very often, that even if somehow they could make a Kindle that you held and it would be like a book in every regard as you held it – the paper would feel papery and the weight would feel weightful and so forth, you’d hit refresh and it would be a different book — but you only have the single object. But I actually feel that I would be even more hard-pressed to give up these kinds of rooms and the sense of orientation with a spatial field of books. That’s so crucial, so formative, for me.”—Writer Jonathan Lethem at Rhizome on Kindles, MP3’s, and more. (via thisistheverge)
