Is nothingness devoid of meaning? In itself - of course - but is it even possible to realize "nothing" if there isn't "something"? Thus nothing is never nothing in itself but merely a pause between somethings. Even though it is intrinsically meaningless it gains meaning from its context.

We understand that the website you linked to is unusual not from itself but from its surroundings, and because it is unusual it is interesting and makes us realize the norms of what usually constitutes a website. And thus we gain insight and meaning from that which is per se absurd.

Wow, the intro was tight. Made me cringe, thinking that this was one of those JavaScript pransk that would bring down your browser, but it didn't.

Inside, the site has a lot of depth. Glossing over it, it probably doesn't look like much, but I like the choice of fonts they used. Hell, it's a great typography site even though they may not be kerning and whatnot like the other kids. I like the story-telling a lot, too. Check out When Windows Attack.

Thanks for the link johnny.

You are telling me that there is more to that website than black text on a white background saying, "no java -- no thing"?!?

I thought it was a statement.
