Consider this article a first prototype, a pebble I throw into the lake, an MVP, a string of assumption, a first attempt of framing a design challenge. Or just read it and tell me what you think.
Here’s a thought I recently had, which will be important if you want to understand what I’m trying to create. The thought might not make sense to you now, but here it is:
