about web



The original hypertext project, Xanadu®, has always been about pure document structures where authors and readers don’t have to think about computerish structures of files and hierarchical directories. The Xanadu project has endeavored to implement a pure structure of links and facilitated re-use of content in any amounts and ways, allowing authors to concentrate on what mattered.

Quotes about web

My internet is substantially quieter than yours, and teaches me new things every day.

If someone thinks putting work online or putting subtitles on a video or turning the volume up or having a transcript compromises the experience, then we don’t need to work together. Surprisingly, these are rebuttals I hear mostly from administrators and curators— rarely from artists.

I could and need to do more.

Hosts control URLs. When they delete a URL’s content, intentionally or not, readers find an unreachable website. This often irreversible decay of Web content is commonly known as linkrot. It is similar to the related problem of content drift, or the typically unannounced changes––retractions, additions, replacement––to the content at a particular URL.
