Some quotes:

[2’10”] I think of the world wide web and XML and cascading style sheets is the ultimate triumph of the typewriter over the author. +++ three fundamental problems today: 1) hierarchical file structures 2) simulation of paper 3) the application prison +++ [12’40”] Software is a branch of movie making. +++ [17’50”] The question is about starting over. +++ ZigZag / Authoplectic structures where trees and tables are just edge cases. +++
