“By spending time navigating, participants add intervals that replicate from the initial tetrahedron shape. Memes are added only online when the intervals are created by people in site, and only by those invited by the owner to timeshare the body and add further meaning to it. Thus the physical and online spaces are interdependent.”

Victoria Vesna introduced the relationship – human body and time concept – which how to have been changed a traditional time and physical organism. It is very interesting. My thoughts, however, reaches the change steps walk more deeply. Though she said it is only meaningful that human’s body is related a time and shared each other, now technologies overcome the limitation of time barriers. For instance, human’s physical old methods for gathering information via web searching are belonged to visiting and exploring the reliable source – portal, news site, professional community, etc – by themselves. But nowadays tech, RSS, requires us to change this pattern.
What is RSS? - “RSS is a format for syndicating news and the content of news-like sites, including major news sites like Wired, news-oriented community sites like Slashdot, and personal weblogs.” (cited from ‘’)
The time I wake up and make an effort to find out some information is Vesna’s basic start for dissertation. But now we can pretend to wake up every time via new technology (if you know how to use this skill).
My idea after reading this article is that ‘knowledge’ is seemed traditionally to memorize something in our brain, but now it is changed as to how fast to find out the answer and how effective to posses the database in our PC.
