"The text that chooses to appear in the network instead of on the table
strives for the greatest possible economy of the word. Reading pleasure
used to be based on piling stylistic ornaments on top of story lines. The
literary calculator now recognises this as noise and an obstacle to
communication."
		(ADILKNO "Media Archive")

2.
	Adilkno(Bilwet) have recently released an English addition of a
book written in '92.
	Much of the stuff was already to be read in various on-line
archives but many chapters have not previously been seen in English.
	Of course some of the words and ideas have dated but many seem to
still be relevant...some very. 

3.
Economy of words is always in my head. 
	This medium wants to be read at speed. Maybe like the new
minimalist one needs only to juxtapose a few sounds to get the feeling
across. no time to waste. While the sounds often listened to, new
minimal, moves extremely slowly, a couple of sounds, changes, pulses,
carried out over an extended time
	...stretched ideas full of variation in their lack of change.
	How is one to listen to this stuff, fill the head with it while at
the same time trying to write without noise?
	Maybe like the new minimalist one needs only to juxtapose a few
sounds to get the feeling across.
