now, this is a nice experimental application: imagine your fridge, and all the magnets used to hang on notes, Domino’s pizza pricelist , your mum’s dentist phone number, etc… you could think of it as a multiuser application, right? well, this experiment intends to do just that: allow several persons to modify the position of a number of words via drag and drop, and create new sentences. hard to make much useful sense of the sentences, but it does have an interest in the notion of “online presence”:

It saves state when you release a piece. It updates itself every 7 seconds, so if you’re on it at the same time as someone else is and they move something, you’ll see that piece move too. And it’s persistent, so what you write will be there next time you come back unless someone else moves it somewhere.
