The Web is a sprawling metropolis of seven-lane roads and undergrounds and small dirt lanes, with “List of Big Brother 17 (American season) houseguests” and “University of Mpumalanga” living six or fewer connections away. Based on Wikiracing and Mad Libs, Wikipedia Narratives is a Wikipedia-based narrative tool to create stories that traverse the information highways.</p>
