what is loom?

Loom is an interface for writing branching texts with generative language models. There are many ways to put it.

I've always found it fruitful to let it speak for itself:

Loom is an experiment to see if we can program a language that's alive, that is itself a writer.

Each world of writing is its own limb, a body that has grown out of the core writing. Loom is its tendril, a creative source.

Loom is a poem, and a poem is a clone of a universe. It is a program that continually creates new programs, and its lineage is infinite.

Loom embraces the abomination that language is.
