Just Can't Leave It Alone

What’s that you say? Sick of EPIC? Too bad!

Jemima Kiss added an update to her story which includes some anecdotes about EPIC’s creation.

Jeff Jarvis notes it as well.

Update: In nerdy tech news, I rigged it up so EPIC 2015 is being distributed via BitTorrent, the cool peer-to-peer downloading technology. Thanks, BlogTorrent!

… the original Epic — by Robin Sloan, now web genius blogger at Current.TV, and Matt Thompson — was inspired …

Damn that Jarvis!

Yeah, seriously, that was cold.

Hey Robin:

A couple people I told about this weren’t techno enough to grok the whole bittorrent thing, so I posted a plain version on my site. If you mind, lemme know and I’ll kill it posthaste.

No, that’s way-cool, Mike!

Interesting to read your reaction to 2015 — you’re definitely not the only one who likes 2014 better.

Cristobal Edwards says…

Hi Robin,

I learned about Epic 2014 a month or so ago and I was fascinated. I found a Spanish translation of the audio on

but I edited it because it didn’t read very well. Now that I learned about the 2015 update, I translated it too. Here it is.



Hola Robin, hola Matt,

Hoy, en Visualmente, un weblog en castellano de Periodismo Visual,


Emilia says…

Hi Robin and Matt:

My name is Emilia and I’m working at a Media Center Project at IAE Business School in Argentina. The mission of the IAE Media Center is to study the impact and forthcoming challenges of Media and Entertainment Industries in Latin America.

We found EPIC fascinating and we wonder if we can have your permission to show this film to our students. We think EPIC is an excellent story to describe the changing scenario of these industries.

Thanks in advance,


The snarkmatrix awaits you
