I was just chatting with a friend named Joe Huck who is working on an idea related to the readability of online text, the idea that it can scroll from left to right instead of (not in addition to) from top to bottom: A Lesson from Alexandria. I got a demo of the alpha version today and was really amazed. Readable online text, not because of crispness or clarity, that's another issue, but because of the way your eyes work reading things without having to track all over the place and lose your place and up and down and over and around... This is an idea that I hope will get around and get the attention of some developers who can take it and run with it, which Joe is just fine with!
