Name for the age
we live in.
Also an excellent book
written by Steven Johnson
. Subtitled "How New Technology
Transforms the Way We Create
Short excerpt: "As our machines
are increasingly jacked- in
to global networks
, it becomes more and more difficult to imagine the dataspace
at our fingertips, to picture all that complexity
in our mind's eye... Representing all that information is going to require a new visual language
, as complex and meaningful as the great metropolitan
narratives of the nineteenth-century novel."
Johnson charts the vital role interface design
plays in our modern society
