brains and hypertext: jumping from gratitude to coco chanel

after publishing my last newsletter, i received this amusing email from my friend rudolf penner.

After following your links over the “There but for the grace of God go I
quote and finding out that the fellow was burnt at the stake, I ended up at
Coco Chanel’s write-up in Wikipedia.

I know, you’re wondering how I got to Coco Chanel from there but for the
grace of god etc. Well, even if you aren’t, here’s how:

link followed:)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloody_Mary (Who would do such a thing?
Bloody Mary (herself))
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloody_Mary_%28cocktail%29 (Bloody Mary
recipe)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry%27s_New_York_Bar (origin of Bloody
Mary)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coco_Chanel (expatriates and celebrities
linked to that Bar in Paris)

don’t you just love hypertext? it works just like our brains, jumping from one idea to another.

    Now I could be quite wrong, but when [soon after] we came to the US, this kind of thing was called ‘brain storming’ although I think that generally referred to people working to in unison and bouncing ideas off one another. Whatever it was [or is] I’m with you on this one.
    Cheers
