March 28, 2000: Alex Wright pointed me to netomat, which is a crazysexycool browser-esque something. Useful? What do you mean is it useful? I dunno, but did I tell you it was cool? Besides, it's always useful to imagine new ways of doing things. The interesting thing to me about netomat is that it forces you to consider that maybe there are completely different modes of information retrieval on the web. Not different phases (e.g. differentiating, monitoring, extracting), but different modes, and why shouldn't ambient browsing be one of them?
