you know, i've seen and and heard their explanations before. i think i've
met just about every shop in town and have seen their work. and i gotta'
tell you it's all basically the same thing.
frankly, i think i'm just bored. when i mention intermedia or hypertext or
social navigation people look at me like i'm from another planet. and these
are old concepts.
is anybody talking about how people see when looking at the computer?
("seeing between the pixels" strothotte and strothotte)
or how the brain processes a thought into an action? ("coherence in thought
and action" thagard)
how about the fact that the web is a space and not a tiny box? which leads
us to a bit of architectural theory...
this is where my head's at. i'm just not sure there's anybody out there
