Out of ideas for mash-ups or the next big thing?
For the A-Z Challenge I'm posting 26 suggestions for new genres. How serious each is I leave you to decide; I have my eye firmly on this debate.
An overview of the life of a fictional technology from innovation to obsolescence, perhaps extending to any revival in interest or use. The narrative structure may require innovation itself so as to reflect the parts of which the technology is the sum or more than the sum, as well as the degree to which the supposed audience is aware. The work may take the form of a memoir by the technology (cf. chip lit), possibly ghostwritten by a ghost in the machine; the work may in fact be the technology. You could think of it as A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man meets Plato's Timaeus meets the first episode of Bertha.
