The Lulu Blooker Prize is the world’s first literary prize devoted to „blooks“: books based on blogs or websites.
Awarded in three categories:
Fiction • Non-Fiction • Comics
Monday, April 3, 2006
Only three days before the Blooker Price is announced. Here is the shortlist of the finalists.
PS: blook n. blook. A printed and bound book, based on a blog (cf. web log) or website; a new stage in the life-cycle of content, if not a new category of content and a new dawn for the book itself. cf. The Lulu Blooker Prize, („The Blooker“), a literary prize, founded 2005, for blooks. [der. Eng. book, a bound collection of sheets of paper; blog (abbrev. web log, an internet journal, diary or personal website)]
PS 2: There is one blog I immediately see as book here and which is already the first swiss mobile novel as well as one of the few interactive literary projects: Nervengift by Sabina Altermatt.
Heute war ich das erste Mal zu Besuch bei Hochparterre und traf dort Sybille und Urs… und Meret;)
Hochparterre hat bereits seit einigen Monaten Blogs; Städteblogs, um genau zu sein:
und last but not least… (online seit Januar)
PS: Nicht nur aus Zürich wird gebloggt, auch Basel hält wacker mit: Live Coverage der Baselworld auf Metrobasel.
Today: To be the only newspaper free of charge in german-speaking Switzerland
Tomorrow: To have 7 people more staff than „heute“ by Ringier and an advantage in „branding“.
The battle will be fierce and… most probably suicidal for all participants.
