Miranda July has just released two things that are wonderful: Somebody, a messaging app that encourages strangers to deliver your texts to friends verbally, and a short film that imagines four increasingly awesome stories around the app.
When Somebody hit the Burrito Den, our internal Slack channel for goofy stuff, there was an explosion of comments, which can only mean two things: something amazing was posted or two people are riffing and it’s spiraled out of control. This video triggered the first kind of explosion.
It’s thoughtful, fun, and a concise example of how we might interact with technology in a more human way, which I’m all about.
