Textbender project is a toolkit for collaborative authoring based on structures and methods derived from nature.
Structures include a genetic code, populations, and a gene pool. A text is encoded with genetic markup and then distributed out to writers to form a population of copies and a gene pool of variations.
Writers communicate by recombination - they make contributions to the pool and they draw on the contributions of others. In the course of their interactions they conduct a search through the design space and the text evolves.
What's New in This Release:
Design was overhauled, switching from simplex, deep pool (bean bag) genetics to regional transfers and paired crossings. The new recombinant tools to support this are not fully coded.
This preview release includes one functional tool, shadow-point; a comparative tool that shows genetic similarities among multiple documents.
