Writer, designer, and publisher Craig Mod pairs a travelogue with a product story in this piece about Hi, a new tool for storytelling. Mod’s approach weaves together fable-like elements with more straightforward storytelling, capturing some of the mysticism he also ascribes to the tool itself. On their own, either element might fail, but combined, they reinforce each other and amplify Mod’s message. —Ed.
