Taking Over the World

Ulises Ali Mejias wrote about various projects that support his vision of “distributed textual discourse.” One of the projects he mentioned was Purple Numbers. One of Ulises comments caught my eye:    (IRF)

While the approach is relatively simple, I guess it was not widely adopted.    (IRG)

It was an interesting comment to make, especially as he didn’t make it about any of the other projects. Perhaps he was surprised by this?    (IRH)

As far as I’m concerned, it doesn’t matter. My goal is for the ideas to take over the world, not for particular manifestations of the idea to win. I want tool builders to realize the importance of Granular Addressability and to incorporate it into their tools, whether or not they’re purple in the end. And there’s still plenty of time for that to happen.    (IRI)
