A Live Reading of Ulysses on Twitter

So you want to read James Joyce's famously impenetrable modernist masterpiece, but you can't seem to take your eyes off the Internet? Problem solved.

So you want to read James Joyce's famously impenetrable modernist masterpiece Ulysses, but you can't seem to take your eyes off the Internet? We've got the solution to your problems.

This year, for Bloomsday, an annual celebration of Joyce and Ulysses, there's an effort underway to recast the novel and publish it in its entirety in a series of tweets. The experiment, called "Ulysses Meets Twitter 2011," will use volunteers, who will each take a section of the book (it's been divided into 96 parts), and distill it into four to six tweets that will go out on the @11ysses account. In this way, the entire book, or a crowd-interpreted version of it, will be broadcast, 140 characters at a time, on June 16, starting at 8:00 a.m. Dublin time.

It looked like the "Ulysses Meets Twitter 2011" organizers were struggling to find enough volunteers to pull it off. A recent publicity blitz, including a post in The New York Times, may have solved that problem, but there are still a few days to get involved if you want. Here's how.
