Around the time I was first learning about web pages/ the internet
etc. I happened to walk past some kind of lido, an open air pool on
the sea-front at Brighton, and the pool was more or less in the shape
of an A4 page. I think on a sign the lido said it had a web page, and I
what the hell a lido needed one for. ( I probably
didnt get why anyone needed a web page yet). In my simple head I
superimposed the page and the pool and thought it would be nice if
the pool was the webpage. The web cam would hang above it
centrally so when you logged on you could see how many people
were swimming. The menus etc would be on the diving board or
whatever. Not that I thought they needed menus. Just the pool being
the page was more than enough excitement.
Later I also thought the web page could be projected onto the
bottom of the pool, so you could watch a delayed shadow/ picture of
yourself on the bottom. But I forgot about feed-back.
||actually video feedback is kind of fun looking.
