I'm writing a piece of autobiography/alternate world fiction, using git. Whether it will get finished or be any good, or be too personal to share I don't know. The idea though is sorta interesting -- a series of descriptions of inflection points in a life, each committed into git at the time it describes. As the life paths diverge, branches form, but never quite merge.

Reading this would not be quite like reading one of those choose your own adventure books. Rather you'd start at the end of a path and read back through the choices and events that led there. Or browse around for interesting nuggets in gitk. Or perhaps the point isn't that it be read at all, but is instead in the writing, and the committing.
