It is something to wrap tour head around.

That is the science of what 'web designers' attempt to do. User experience and semantics here on the WWW reminds of the medical culture and related science in the 1400's. (yes, I'm that old)

The science of how we communicate on the web is primitive at best. I wonder if (and I have preliminary evidence to support this) that we have created more capacity than our ability to use it effectively.

Dinfilter gave parody to latency and state of change in a information state. We included a visual output that while accurate statistically crashed often throwing XML fatal errors because people could not compose the description element accurately or use RSS effectively.
We have simple literacy issues on the web.

In a presentation I actually heard a software engineer say that web design is subjective. heh he was hauled into the bosses office and given a bit of time off and required reading.
