Primer Needed for Joyce’s Journey

I was inspired by a documentary screened a couple of weeks ago on James Joyce’s Ulysses. I am keen to read the whole book now that I understand more about how the book is structured. Interesting that I needed this info (eg: each chapter is a different writing style, theme and so on) to feel I could ‘access’ it… Anyway, I found some neat websites on the book:
Ulysses Online
Ulysses For Dummies
One Page Every Day
Hypermedia Joyce Studies
Michael Groden’s Digital Ulysses and Ulysses in Hypermedia.

I thought I’d begin this blog with a reference to an online service that facilitates communication with the future. No time like the present.

The website Future Me allows you to write an email to yourself that will be delivered on date in the future selected by you . You can choose to have your email public or private. Looking through the public emails it seems that people who use this are really wanting their future self to be better than their current dull or painful present. Just like in my story. Ooo, I’m excited.
