• Nothing in the world is easy except pissing in a shower
  • I saw her freaky cyst and this is how she treats me
  • Simple notions of legibility and usability will not suffice
  • Use the computer. It's not a television
  • All systems for organizing information must determine a way of sorting and classifying it. This includes the Human Genome Project
  • I am a bit slow mentally, but managed to install MS-DOS 6.22 and Windows 3.1 onto Virtualbox. Once I got it working I felt as happy as a fox yokai
  • We may find excitement in individual pages, but the hypertextual whole seems a mere shell enclosing variously interesting bits
  • The past is irretrievable even as its traces are visible
  • The common person is unequiped to battle the amount of sheer shit that is out there. It's too much, overly promoted and jammed down your throat. We hope that once you realize the small things and the big things, you can unplug from this system and go on with your life
  • It is not the forms themselves that matter, but rather the accident that, through these forms, our past sometimes whispers to us
  • Not finding a hypertext like this is much sadder than picking a bad icon. Usability, he argued, is a domain of percentages: important, but limited. Recall and precision presuppose we know what we need.
  • This aesthetically pleasing browser has begun a revolution in the way we experience knowledge. In the world of the Web, knowledge is not something you produce, but something you participate in. A document isn't a self-sufficient individual creation, but a perspective, or collection of perspectives, on the entire Web. This may sound abstract, but with Mosaic on your screen, it is suddenly, strikingly concrete. All the documents in the Web are within reach. What path will you take to get to them? What path will you mark for others to take?
  • The World Wide Web is, of course, a huge and wonderful hypertext - a docuverse.
  • Though all five sites are linked, each site is self-contained
  • Summer is the ideal season to contemplate that perennial, overused, and ever-elusive concept of cool.
  • I realized today, while presenting a research project proposal, that my focus during all of college has been the place of the Self and the mystical in technology. That's really what I care about. And I feel like it's possible. Hmm. Atheistic techno-shamanism? Man, that sounds wrong somehow. I hope my thesis can make that idea clear, at least emotionally.
  • Blogger's damned easy, and damned fun.
  • We need to describe phenomena, whatever our theoretical beliefs
  • O Tumblr virou a MTV, a MTV virou o Tumblr. E ambos destruíram a distância cínica da estética digital que as guiava
  • A mãe pensou a mesma coisa de todas as manhãs: na velhice, tinha de enfrentar sozinha problemas graves
  • Mas seria este realmente um plano de fuga? E os anos todos que vivera percorrendo, de norte a sul, o mundo que criara dentro de si?!
  • As long as there are sunsets on Ashby Ave. and new clothes every now and then, I wonder if it'll ever get boring although I must admit as a kid I expected a little more variety.
