- 22/09/21 Emoji markup with Jian, Kamo, Erica––annotating a reader with emojis to indicate the beginning and endings of each person's side notes, questions, distractions, references, etc. Annotations became interruptions that were woven into the original reader and transformed it into reader 2.0.
- 28/09/21 Text traverse + keyword geotag with Alex, Jian––selecting, combining, and rearranging texts from multiple readers to create a new one to perform with. Keyword repetition is used as a text navigation tool/method, so performance can vary (for example, start/stop reading at specific word).
