User Experience Design from A-Z by Wouter de Bres

Christopher Alexander made a great diagram, a spectrum of privacy: street to sidewalk to porch to living room to bedroom. I think for many of us Twitter started as the porch—our space, our friends, with the occassional neighborhood passer-by. As the service grew and we gained follwers, we slid across the spectrum of privacy into the street.

Really superlative work from Mr. Shalom. I’ve been trying to figure out how to approximate a tool to do something with micro-edits like this in a live situation. It’s incredibly tough to get somewhere with that….but it has such great possibilities. I think the devoted work and practice here really shows. Gabriel is becoming quite a craftsman.

Cory Arcangel’s new book is just tweets of people saying they’re working on their novel. This is simultaneously amazing and also forming a deep pit of despair in my gut.

A growing genre of API/search/program/collate as conceptual poetry (or literature).
