Text is unilinear.  

o  Information is situated.

Form is separated from content  

o  Formless content is more complex than situated content.

HTML is complicated code.

o  CSS + XML is more complicated code.  CSS + XML + XQuery + SQL is more
complicated than that.

XML was invented to separate form from content.

o  XML was invented to prove SGML + HyTime + DSSSL was bad.

XML facilitates automated data exchange

o  XML feeds complicated syntax to complicated code written in dumbed down

XML allows people to upload text without writing complicated code 

o  if they use less powerful unilinear text entry applications written in
complicated code.

o  Video too:  if they learn to manage a firewall.

o  Writing to a blog only requires you to type in unilinear text.

o  Each time we forge a link, we state an opinion.

o  Each time a link asserts a false relationship, we publish superstition.

o  Web 2.0 is linking opinions into mass superstitions that are retarding
the planet.

o  ... and foisting bad loops off as good music.

o  Bad loops are a good reason to turn off the sound.

The web is more of less and less of better.

The web is linking more of less.

We need to think more about rethinking less.
