To navigate the web is to beat a path through a labyrinth of links left by others, and to thereby create associative links yourself, unspooling them like a guiding thread onto a floor already carpeted with such connections. Each thread of connection is unique, individualized: everyone draws their own map of the network as they navigate it.
A nice write-up of dConstruct that focuses on three ideas that were threaded throughout the day:
- Digital is about beauty and about layers,
- The power of play, and
- The interconnectedness of things through chance.
The web demonstrates its loosely-joined nature yet again; a photo of mine from a science hack/design fiction exhibit results in Dave discovering his family crest.
Dirk is back. The interconnectedness of all things returns as in App Engine form.
