The Hyperlink Delusion
A personal statement to upgrade the Web.
Notes about the format.
Why I wrote this text and why you may be interested in reading it.
The Internet is a living collective portrait of humanity.
We need complex technology to cope with complexity.
The Internet is not the same as the Web.
The design of the Web
We browse the Web, jumping from page to page using links as portals.
Links are pointers, not connectors. Links are unidirectional by design.
True connections on the web require extra effort.
Platforms manage connections for you. Some of these platforms rule the world today.
Platforms need your attention because they want you to create more connections to manage.
The Web established the rules for a game of inequality that platforms learned to master.
Unidirectionality of links is a major flaw in the design of the Web.
I am here to participate in a collective effort to upgrade the Web.
