Book ARG

We've seen alternate reality games for movies and for music and for video games, but I believe the game for Steven Hall's The Raw Shark Texts is the first ARG built around a book. The adventure starts at LostEnvelope.com and includes clues left on Flickr, YouTube, and other sites, all ending a real-world prize. More details at Vulture.

I don't know... wasn't Kit William's "Masquerade" the first back in '79?

Huh, I've never heard of that, but it's pretty awesome.
