We think these blue marbles are the ultimate 'socio-physical media' app in the REAL physical. Dorothy B. Hughes certainly plays with this trope in her famous novel The So-Blue Marble (). Her lovely protagonist, saddled with the unlovely name Griselda, decides to visit New York and stay in her ex-husband's apartment, at his request.

Once the dashing, top-hatted twins had the marble, they would do to Griselda what they had done to others. Her estranged husband, Con, a thousand miles away, could no longer save her. A bloody trail wound about the so blue marble, years of theft, torture, violence; whispers of secret riches, gold, diamonds, rubies as big as the moon.   Listen to So Blue Marble audiobook by Dorothy B.
