Miranda July's Homemade Website



As you regulars know, I don't feature a lot of online work. Partly because the interactive stuff usually isn't as simple or elegant or thoughtful as it could be. But I just fell in love with this website for author Miranda July's new book, "No One Belongs Here More Than You." It reminds us that you don't need a ton of flash-button-widget- embedded-java-rollover-send-to-a-friend nonsense to create a highly creative and entertaining site. In this case you just need a kitchen a dry erase marker and a free evening. It's as if we have all forgotten that a website is just a blank canvas for communicating. For a much needed reminder, check it out and then as a way of thanking Miranda for this bit of online inspiration, go buy her book.

Really nice. I hate words but I might buy a book full of them because of this site.

Thanks for posting the link to the site. I thought it might be of interest to small publishers and self-publishing authors, all of whom have to face the problem of selling books on a Web site. So I posted the link on a mailing list.

Here's the interesting thing: The reactions to the site have been completely polarized. People either hate it or they love it. Nobody is even close to neutral.

So for some reason I can't divine, the site neatly cleaves people into two mutually incomprehensible groups (nobody has succeeded in explaining to the other group either what they love about it or what they hate about it).

Maybe some psychologist can use the site as a diagnostic test!

I love words, and I love this site, just thought I'd stand up against the haters

Amazing.

Response to Dick: the difference between people who love the site and those who hate is the ability to really feel things. The ones who hate the site just pass trough life, without feeling it.

The cost of the policy is slightly more expensive than the annual period of the first year, but then I have to keep the term policy level. Most insurance companies offer policies once issued, the costs remain level regardless of health status. Life annual renewable annually for life insurance must be renewed every year, but they are good, affordable option if you only need a few years is of sufficient magnitude to cover short-term costs, such as university education in a child (which is slightly less painful than paying mortgage!).
