I miss the experiments of the Olde Internette.

Time was, people would try little experiments online. Like supergluing something to a wall and live-streaming it, or writing on a website that they owned.

Heady times. Back before social media killed the open web.

I’m always happy to see experimental webthings popping up. It’s proof that there’s still life out there.

Two such internety experiments popped up today:

  1. This website is an interactive map that writes a Haiku based on where you are in NYC.
  2. On this website music samples are plotted along the 13 dimensions of self-reported emotional experience evoked by music across cultures. (HT Rob Campbell)
