Not much logging to do here at the moment because we’re steeped in the arts. My nose is buried in the 100 Images Project. But I also have some ideas going about hypertext, processing, and the ghostly arguments about hypertext that have been traversing the journals for the last few years.
I heard someone talking about Miles Davis today and the challenge of having to reinvent his sound as a means of pushing the boundaries and doing so in the face of other competing sounds. It’s a never-ending struggle. All artists have the same problem. Hypertext and hypermedia should be a big country. Creative systems are important. We should use and control them well. Let’s talk about why. Let’s not forget the works.
We should push our systems to their limits. Pushing the system to the limit. Now there’s a battle cry.
