Glypho: Collaborative Novel Writing

It appears to be in early genesis, but Glypho looks like a fun collaborative writing method: one user picks a story idea, other users offer suggestions for characters and plot, and others choose to actually write the content based on thesuggestions. The entire process is managed online, in an almost Wikilike way.

Novels by committee could be quite interesting, especially for novels that require broad knowledge-sets for accuracy and believability, like technological thrillers or historical drama. It also smells like improvisational theatre, which has produced a lot of quality media in the past decades. Will I participate? We'll see -- I plan on watching how the site works for a while.
