It happens. from the brain to the computer. sometimes going through iterations. other times emerging fluidly. you see it. you touch it. you experience it. you might need to 'sign in' to see it. you might need to 'update your user profile' or upload a picture. nevertheless. it exists. it springs from a business model, forged from a spreadsheet.
