We don't interface with computers - we interface with information – and people – increasingly through the mediated information environments of networked computers. I feel that this connection – this flow – between people – information, and tools can benefit from becoming more liquid.
I assert that the written word is a fundamental unit of knowledge as as such, how richly we interact with the written word constrains and facilitates how richly we interact with our knowledge.
This is why I started the Author Project; to provide a more liquid information environment for the written word, augmenting our ability to write with more credibility and read with more clarity:

This is done as a push towards Deep Literacy where the power of the user is increased by ever more powerful tools - both digital and mental. Author is part of the Future Text Initiative which also features the annual Future of Text Symposium.
