Web2.0 on the Tree of Life

as a human branch
browses from website to website
webpage to webpage

storytopics are activated
in its radial ontology

and it may be moved to
bookmark the page
or blog it for others

or create a new content-item
responding to it
to be posted on the same site
or a different one

the content being browsed
can be thought of as
a stream of data-items

being evaluated
acted upon

the branch's blog
can be thought of
as a filtered subset of that stream
plus newly added content

as, similarly
the moderator of a website
filters the stream of new content
submitted by other readers

so as browsing software evolves
it must become easier and easier
to apply the same actions
to every sort of content

sites pages sections-of-pages
images soundfiles movies

sets of images
sets of pages

conversational threads

all equally bookmarkable
or bloggable

effortlessly shared with a definite
or undefined audience

with relevant past discussions
anywhere on the Net
automatically tracked

and current or new discussions
automatically opened to those who qualify
