news feed scrollable by time, author and subject in 3 dimensions
This is a facebook feed that scrolls up
down by time, left and right by time for each individual
poster, and in and out (along the z axis by having a flip-
series ) by subject.
A different kind of 3-D FB. [nineteenthly, Jan 30 2018]
||I love... perusing... facebook, I guess I would say,
that is the word for it that occurred to me just now, but
is more of a browsing, or actually, it is kind of an ADD
suicide where I follow the story line for between 1 and 5
seconds and then when I get sick of it, I kill the moment
scrolling to the next post. And that's pretty much the
choice you have, to kill the immediate moment and then
see what facebook has spawned for you in the next
moment, which will be of course subtly influenced a
nominal percentage of the time by their algorithms. So
like killing your immediate self and waiting to see what
the environment will come up with next, which is fine if
the environment is nature because nature has a pretty
track record, but increasingly in my experience the
environment seems to be producing assholes as
by the 7 billion too many people who are populating my
facebook feed, so, maybe one way to change this, or
maybe just sucker more people into using facebook so
they can continue to either overpopulate the world, or
come to think of it maybe to anethetize themselves into
non procreative state and thereby solve the population
problem, would be to make facebook 3D, with the
dimensions being time, author and subject, so that you
could scroll the chronological facebook feed up and
but then, when you wanted to, scroll each poster left
right to see the history of their posts, and then scroll
the z axis by seeing a flip chart of other posts related to
||If they would rather die, said Scrooge, they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population.from Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol

BecauseGodToldMeTo. I'm not even joking.
He let me play on there for a few gloriously heady weeks
until He'd had His fun and said His say through me, and
then He rather abruptly reigned me in before I allowed the
whole experience to go to my head, which would inevitably
have resulted in Facebook becoming Headbook, with huge
inflated 3D heads popping up on every profile page,
complete with audio function, each one screaming it's
Babel until one furiously clicked it away.
Brrrrr! Thanks for sparing me, God.
||It's not that easy if you are using it so people can contact
you for advice and buy things off you on which you rely
financially. If I didn't have it available all the time, most of
the income from my business over the past few years would
not have come my way.
