Pottermore Opens

Pottermore is open to the public! I was gonna blog about something else but seriously, what else matters now? More Harry Potter so, I'm excited. Can you tell? ;)

As a writer, I'll be taking notes. As I've said before, I'm really interested in how technology will change the way we interact with content. An article about eBook apps said we're heading towards a time where the maps at the beginning of fantasy novels could be interactive. I hope so. That would be pretty cool.

Here's a message from Pottermore Insider
"Get ready to begin your Pottermore journey, because Pottermore.com is now opening to everyone.

Over the coming days, we'll be inviting new users onto Pottermore.com. We're expecting to be really busy to start with and plan to activate new registrations in a steady stream. This means that you may not get access to Pottermore immediately after you sign up but we will get you exploring the site as quickly possible.

After you've signed up, you'll get sorted into one of the four Hogwarts houses, have a wand choose you, and discover exclusive new writing from J.K. Rowling.

We’ll be adding lots of exciting new features over the coming weeks and months, so make sure you return regularly to explore and discover all the changes as Pottermore grows."  
How awesome does that sound? It's like Second Life meets Harry Potter. I already registered. Now, I'm waiting for an email telling me I can enter Pottermore. No worries. I've been waiting for like months- I think I can wait a little longer. Besides, if access was instant, I'd be doing nothing else today.

  3. While I enjoyed some of the Potter movies, especially the last two, I'm really not a die-hard Potter fan. But, what would be really cool as Pottermore grows, would be a graphic interactive medium that will allow the fan to interact with the characters.
