I suppose that my question is also : can we make a
difference between "writing" and "publishing" in the
examples that have been given all along this discussion ? It
seems to me that there is one and that some projects belong
more to the writing model than to the publishing one.

> books inside books
> and interstitial publishing can create revenues such as at Windermere Real

> allowing potential buyers to see house interiors, open dialogues, etc
> moving onto totally different domains, the "Selective Memory Theatre"
> creates artificial memory mechanisms by using Fickr as a global brain,
> trying to mimicking the ways our brains work
