Introduction to “Flame Wars”: A Short Fiction Digital Artifact

Flame Wars is a pessimistic imagining of a world in which “posting and commenting… are the actions of the day.” It’s an alternate near-future based on the premise that in 2007, the UN decided to force posting and commenting to be the actions of the day. It’s kind of a work in progress, as fiction it could use more sensory details. But as far as use in this class, it covers what I want it to.

In the alternate reality presented, few things get done anymore and the internet hasn’t even advanced to the speeds of streaming video. Hopefully that should clear up the only confusing element, but if you have any questions or if anything didn’t make sense (or even if you really disagree with any points made or outcomes envisioned) please leave me a comment.
