Another part of the thread. Manuel Simoni (@msimoni) says :
But I don’t want a file system, I want Xanadu. But it should still be editable through a WIMP/desktop UI.
Sure. We all want / work towards Xanadu 🙂 Though at the very least I want mine to run on a tablet, have swipe-able cards like Material Design, and allow me to write Prolog-like rules for making automatic inferences that generate new information / views.
Do you think a tablet is a good device for creating content, or are you talking just about browsing?
And my response :
It seems that social apps have figured out ways to get users to put a lot of data into their systems. Problem is that the data is just being used for social media type things. \2
