Great thoughts, Stewart. Did you write that or did you call Thomas Cahill?

I hadn't thought of zoom to reveal as anything more than a fad. Upon further cogitation the information age presents data in relation to each other, in the forms of constellations. You can appreciate one star, or person, or building, or you can "zoom out" and see the constellation, the world they live in, or the city the building is part of. Constellations of meaning differ greatly from hierarchy of information. The same idea lack of hierarchy and importance of relationship comes into play with cutting and pasting. The portability of information and it's tangential relationship to other information is an earmark of the information age and is thus manifested in our age's media.
