The Good Captain

Jay Bushman

The Good Captain is a sci-fi adaptation of the Herman Melville novella Benito Cereno, and one of the earliest experiments in using Twitter as a storytelling medium.

The Good Captain began its initial broadcast over Twitter on November 3, 2007 and concluded on February 29, 2008. It was featured at the 2008 Electronic Literature Organization Conference in Vancouver, Washington.
