I'm launching this as a code critique thread, but really it's more about tools for studying code. We're always on the lookout for new environs for Critical Code Studies. We've used Scalar combined with a code repository, Google Docs, Wordpress plugins, and others. Lately, I've been excited about Google's instantiation of Jupyter Notebooks.
In Colaboratory, code readers can share python code in a Google Doc-like setting. The code in those docs can be compiled, altered, and run.
I'd like to use this thread as a place to discuss Colaboratory/Jupyter Notebooks as a venue or workspace for Critical Code Studies.
Taroko Gorge is here for our collective annotation.
For another example, I offer my own interactive fiction Flight of the CodeMonkeys as another example of using Colaboratory/Jupyter Notebooks. In that story, the reader plays by interacting with the code.
I could also imagine using Colaboratory/Jupyter Notebooks to teach lessons in CCS, inviting students to interact with, annotate, and alter code in this shared environment?
What do you think about the possibilities for this tool? I invite you also to try experiments and share them here.
