The novel goes to crap...or does it?

So I open up the Washington Post this morning and see this article, Bethesda Start-Up Makes Writing a Little Less Lonely , about an online community that writes novels and posts them for users to contribute to/revise/comment on, etc. While I'm not really down with the whole self-publishing aspect of it, it's an interesting read.

  1. I wonder if this is will create McDonald's novels--what lots of people like but isn't necessarily good or good for you. Or if the democratic novel could actually produce something astounding, like, well, Beowulf. I mean, that was collaborative, right? The Internet as mead hall?
