Charting The Semantic Stream

…what Man touches, he stains with meaning…
…it flows like water, permeating everything…

Each computer system presents a different view of the world. Like water sitting in bottles, bowls and buckets with different shapes, meaning fills every available nook and cranny. But just as there are not enough bottles to hold all of the water of the world, no system can hold all of the meaning man can project.

This site is dedicated to capturing my ideas regarding the movement of concepts through human-defined artifacts. The goal is to capture an impression of the nature and properties of meaning and symbol, and to discover and map how meaning flows – what changes and what remains constant – as it passes from one end of civilization to the other.
