Additional information

This story is condensed from one created in the Japanese 'Renga' fashion by ten writers, each contributing one paragraph in sequence, with only the coordinator knowing the source of each paragraph. The authors were at a workshop on “Artistic Forms and Complexity”, partially supported by the European Commission and organized by John Casti at the Wissenschaftszentrum Wien in Vienna in October 2005. The original story is at http://www.wzw.at/file_upload/Kovacic_tmpphppCqC5Y.doc .
