Most interesting! Can you give me an idea of the innovations you are thinking of?

Kind regards,

You see what you want to see.  Your nodes are my tangle.  Your concrete
wall is my freedom to innovate.

I don't mind people talking about nodes - I do use them myself - but
when people insist on nodes as the one true primary view, as you appear
to be doing, I question the value of the conversation.

If that's "backwards and downwards", fine.  I'm not sure why you've
chosen to stand on the ceiling.  I expect that eventually you'll fall off.
