The Great Not-Necessarily-American Wiki Novel

Taking a page out of the Wikipedia playbook, Penguin Publishing has set up its very own wiki novel called, fittingly, "A Million Penguins." The idea is to allow anyone and everyone a chance to contribute to a novel. The project just started last week, but it appears to already be up to chapter 15 -- although they're short chapters thus far into it. So far, characters include Ismail the Unicorn, Linus Torvalds, Mr. Pitor Pibb, Bill Gates and someone called Mr. Bombastic. Stay tuned. This could either end up being very cool or a complete disaster... which probably makes it a worthwhile experiment.
