I totally agreed with Cory's take on the whole Author's Guild vs. Reality (and text 2 speech) kerfuffle, and I saw that other authors like John Scalzi and Neil Gaiman were pretty much on the same, uh, page.wil wheaton vs. text 2 speech
But then I wondered: What if we're all wrong? As an author, performer, and consumer of audiobooks, what does this mean for me? Are we really threatened by this?
To find out, I picked a short passage from my book Sunken Treasure and read it. Then, I took the identical passage, and let my computer read it. I recorded the whole thing and put together something I call "Wil Wheaton versus Text 2 Speech" so you can hear for yourself.
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
