Big Ass Browser

First we had the internet. We stored all our texts and images in databases. Then came search engines to locate the data. Now is the time to interconnect it all; to share knowledge and make deep content accessible in blinks of an eye. Even your daily weblog and flickr-photoalbum will not be safe from this monster of content. It is said to be screen-independent, without pop-ups, just zooms.

"Metaverse" is one database of collective memory. It is made possible in the M*soft project: Seadragon, combining Photosynth-technology and Deepfish-zoom. Seadragon is to be launched in February 2008.

My guess: When this exploring-software becomes integrated with live experience, all it takes is one Timeline to browse the Metaverse history. And when that happens, predicting the future should be piece of pie! (the url already seems to be incorporated)

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Ine Geevers: #YesNaturally was about co-evolution and partnership. How to become friends with o.a. bacteria, microbes and viruses. Because yes, they can be deadly and vital at the same time.
