Path (my company!)
Most of the Time
American history around the time of the Revolution, figuring out how to marry top-down task-based information architecture processes with bottom-up document-based ones, finding a good dentist in
San Francisco Oakland
the user experience (interaction design, information architecture, user
research, etc.), cognitive science, ice cream, films and film theory,
girls, commuter bicycling, coffee, travel, theoretical physics for laypeople,
single malt scotch, fresh salmon nigiri, hanging out, comics formalism,
applied complexity theory, Krispy Kreme donuts.
to see where I wander.

|Diversion for a Friday. Posted on 03/29/2002.
An article on e-literature from a bit back introduced me to the works of poet and scholar Thomas Swiss, whose web-based work is quite good (I particularly like GENIUS). Swiss has written work published in Poems That Go, a site devoted to multimedia poetry.
(Language police: To commence your experience with Thomas' various poems, you are variously encouraged to either "begin," "read," "launch," "stroll," or "enter." A few just begin without need for your prompting.)
Thomas' site also points to an engaging meditation on Web Radio, which I found refreshing in the context of, say, Doc's SF-Bay-Guardian-like harangues about Web radio and copyright. (As in [and only San Franciscans will get this]: Doc:CARP::SFB Guardian:PG&E).
If you've still got some free Friday time, why not take a trip to Piotr Szyhalski's The SPLEEN, a Web art project dating all the way back to 1996, and still a standard bearer in net.art.
