I am developing a tangential non-narrative form I call "SURF-TRAILS". It is simply to find weblinks and organize them into web journeys, an annotated surfing journal or diary.

The theme I am working on now is interconnectivity. Here are the first links:

THE 1000$ PAGE



The first link to the 1000$ PAGE features a contest for personal web pages. The success of this site is that it creates something new like a collage does, using original works of other authors as it's building blocks. The integrity of the original pieces are still intact even as a part in this new context.

The second link for Fusionanomaly was the first website I ever found that really pushed the limits of the simple hypertext potential.

The third link to the UNCYCLOPEDIA is not only endless fun, it is an excellent illustration of "truth vs. fiction" in the media, and is a hilarious spoof on virtuel syndromes.

The following  DIGEST of DAILY WEBW@VE TOPICS is t he first SURF-TRAIL I made for my Webw@ve experimental cyberlab in Holland. A theme of water is the undercurrent of the idea to explore cultures real or mythical, swallowed up by water and perhaps re-emerging. Each day the public was presented these links to explore together and we discussed what we found.
