I have come to the startling realization that I think in hypertext. Anyone who has ever spoken to me, or perhaps more appropriately, listened to me go on about something understands that I tend to go off on tangents. So ten, twenty years ago I was merely unfocused and unable to stick with a conversational topic. Now I am hip and cool with words that describe my easily distracted nature.
So when I talk about some topic, I can visually link to another topic and yet appear focused on the original thought.
Of course the real trick is to find people who can listen in hypertext without getting distracted by all those blue lines! Of course I'm not the only one thinking this.
Well until that happens I will leave you with small diversions that give you warm fuzzies and loud gaffaws courtesy of Evany.
