Collaboration baby. Bring it together.

I've been thinking a lot about collaborative projects lately. I'd love to create an interactive novel with a variety of writers and designers, so that the novel is a multidimensional experience, rather than just felt through one medium. The key would be to first agree on the glove that holds the ideas together: the storyline and organizing principle that would allow the various contributors to digress, improvise and go off on strange tangents. It would be great to get the public involved, whether as editors or curators (the pieces they prefer, want published). The whole project could be a great outlet for creativity and a quasi-experiment. I wonder how many ways you could tell a story? A collage of images and photography at a gallery, online site with connecting groups/fans, video montage, print book?

Any takers?
