MX - The Language of New Media 63-78

The part of this reading that I found particularly interesting was when it was talking about what an average American does everyday. All of those things done on a computer are using the same tools in different ways. It is shocking how universal the world web has become where someone can end up on a website from another country yet still be able to navigate and have some comprehension of the data because of the standards of the interface.

Our multimedia projects are taking this common interface and pushing the boundaries of the navigation possibilities. The standard web forms have made all website navigation standard to a point where information can be placed inside the parameters of a web page without much alteration to the interface. What is left then is a wide gap between content and interface.
