Me oh my. This is awesome. “ASCII art. Written pictures, drawn words. What’s in this for the participant, and what’s brought to it by participants? What remains when they leave? Icontext is a free space on the Web that presents visitors with an open-ended interplay of words and pictures. What you do with your keyboard and mouse determines what appears on the screen and what subsequent visitors see and read. At its most basic level, Icontext is a hybrid of telecommunication, drawing, and word processing software. It sets up a fluid correspondence between keystrokes and blocks of color. For example, when you type ‘dog,’ the word ‘dog’ appears, and so does a series of three color blocks. Icontext also works on other levels, allowing visitors to collaborate with each other and to upload, archive, and reconfigure ‘icontexts.'”
