Internet as Labyrinth

recycledspam100. . . the internet is a labyrinth waiting to be explored, added to and to have new navigational journeys charted within it. There is already an overwhelming amount of information online, and those who provide a service do so with a filter rather than a funnel. I have a feeling that what will distinguish good weblogs from great weblogs over the next few years, will not be the content or the links, but the navigational structures we create to lead people through creative and transformative experiences with information.

    When McLuhan wrote “Understanding Media” he thought we were approaching the “technological simulation of consciousness”. Nice to know that the effectiveness of the global nervous system is still a function of human intervention.
