  26. The Laws of Alchemy
    • In order for true alchemy to operate, an Alchemist must
    fully understand the structure of matter. He/she must
    possess the “sight” (the ability to not see an object as a
    whole, but as a structure constructed of trillions upon
    trillions of atoms).

  30. "What if our thoughts could think for themselves?
    What if our dreams no longer needed us?
    When these things occur and are held to be true,
    the time will be upon us.
    The time of Angels.”

  31. Designing Webs:
    IA as a Creative Practice
    • Think Webs, not just Websites.
    • The WWW is a medium which is ideally suited to expressing creativity
    • Engage with the networked world by creating culture, both high & low
    • APIs and the Internet of Things show that magic & alchemy are possible
