Cheers to kick-ass-fellow-grad-student-in-another-discipline Chad Thornton for telling a good story that used the brilliant term intertwingled.

According to Ted Nelson, "intertwingularity is not generally acknowledged, people keep pretending they can make things deeply hierarchical, categorizable and sequential when they can't. Everything is deeply intertwingled."

Oh yeah!

Anyway, the links above are from the FoAM Librarynth: "the Libarynth is a parafictional, semifunctional (deeply InterTwingled) collection of documents, notes and RandomNess in the smouldering rubble of babel. it exists simultaneously as the online tangent vortex for FoAM. The CategoryIndex is a good place to start for a more organised perspective on the battle between order and chaos."

I've raved many times about FoAM, and one of my dissertation case studies deals with their lovely approach to art and technology, but I'd forgotten about the content of the Librarynth wiki. It's a great resource.
