Every word in the text below is a hyperlink.
“…try to visualise all the streams of human interaction, of communication. All those linking streams flowing in and between people, through text, pictures, spoken words and TV commentaries, streams through shared memories, casual relations, witnessed events, touching pasts and futures, cause and effect. Try to see this immense latticework of lakes and flowing streams, see the size and awesome complexity of it. This huge rich enviornment. This waterway paradise of all information and identities and societies and selves.“
I’m very fond of the Raw Shark Texts and generally fiction that makes me think about non-fiction ideas. The hyperlinked excerpt above contains links to get the book yourself if you like. It’s worth it. I’ll try to jot something more coherent here about what I was trying to achieve and why. It took a lot longer than I thought and some of the links could be chosen better or smarter or differently.
