Evolutionary chaos

Richard Long

I did not mean to imply that the cyberjournal should be judged by print standards. Far from it. Though at the same time I don't think, I think, that devices that work in one medium should be banned from a new medium. If the new can incorporate things that work in the old, why not, yet at same do so and still develop into something new. That's what evolution is all about. Taking what works and adding to it by trial and error.

That's what's exciting about the idea of cyberjournal. Maybe there's not an exact image of what it will be. If it's to be chaotic, it will never have an overall image, except of chaos, unless that chaos self organizes.
