Spent some time hacking over the weekend. And here's the result: a minimalist interactive version of Wittgenstein's Tractatus.
The Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus is a text I've worked with already in the past.
After testing it out a bit I realised that this approach allows to focus on the text with more attention that having it all displayed at once.
Since the words appear one at a time, it feels more like a verbal dialogue than reading. As a consequence, also the way the meaning of the text gets perceived changes.
Slower, deeper. Almost like meditating. Try it out here.
