Nonlinear codification of information using computers
Computer seem to be mostly sequential / linear in how information is presented and processed. I find it very un-intuitive. Take TED for example, many of there presentations after a short time seem to drop off the edge of the world. Or we fail to see interrelatedness between presentations.
Information tends to be organic in nature . It changes and grows. Computers tend to be very ridged. They seem to fight how we function . They are not very intuitive.
The only example I have found that seems to function in a non linear way is the program VISUAL THESAURUS . It clusters words in a mind map way and shows how information is interrelated automatically. Think the same thing can be done with presentations.
