From grid to network; or, metaphors we blog by

While in Chicago for the CCCC convention last month, I stayed in a hotel that that had been built pre-World War II. I took a picture of a doorknob:



I find Art Deco design very satisfying: so geometrical. So grid-like. The beauty of precise, bordered form.

On my last day in Chicago I took a walk down to the new Millenium Park.



And yet I love this, too, though it is an image not of the grid, but of the network. Yes? How so?

Is a blog more like Millenium Park than like the doorknob? What forms of writing are like the doorknob?

Please. Talk among yourselves.
