Quote of the Day

In the initial design of the web reading and writing (editing) were
given equal consideration – yet for fifteen years the primary metaphor
of the web has been pages and reading. The metaphors we used to
circumscribe this possibility set were mostly drawn from books and
architecture (pages, browser, sites etc.). Most of these metaphors were
static and one way. The steam metaphor is fundamentally different. It’s
dynamic, it doesn’t live very well within a page and still very much

A stream. A real time, flowing, dynamic stream of information — that
we as users and participants can dip in and out of and whether we
participate in them or simply observe we are a part of this flow.
