113 Crickets is a new literary periodical based in Silicon Valley and published quarterly by Dymaxicon and edited by Tobias Mayer.
Through the publication of both technology-orientated books and works of fiction it strives to promote connections between the two fields. With the advent of agile practices, complexity science, and other modern, more human-centric ideas over the past ten years, many leading technology companies and start-ups alike have embraced a new approach to running businesses, one that treats work as a creative endeavor, and people as unique individuals, rather than components of a system. Such an approach lends itself naturally to craftsmanship and art, hence our effort to seek out and form connections between technology and the literary world.
113 Crickets will feature prose, poetry and short stories by new and upcoming writers, alongside extracts from Dymaxicon’s own literary publications, coupled with author interviews. In addition to this content 113 Crickets will embrace its Silicon Valley roots by seeking published writers from the Bay Area to participate in the project.
*FYI – 113 Crickets is currently #1 on the Amazon Hot New Releases: Best Poetry list, and have been there for the past two days
I had the opportunity to read through it on my recent flight to my client site. I loved the fresh-ness of the writing and the prose. The poems were a nice add as well.
