Web Surfing though hyperlinks (hyperlink tunnelling) is still the best way to explore internet. You can discover interesting contents and creative connections between various fields.

The distracting characteristic of hypertexts increase information fatigue. When we meet link in a web page, we should decide whether open it or not. As soon as we open the link, the new document will cover the document you were viewing. This experiences form the habit of skimming over web documents. We usually do not read deeply and slowly in online.

Each time we encounter a link, our brain (prefrontal cortex) stop reading for a split second and decide whether click it or not. We may not perceive this quick mental switch from reading to judging, repeated interfering decrease our ability of understanding and memory.

A fun way to surf wiki

What a beautiful way to surf the content on Wikipedia! It's fun to just scroll around to look at the stars and galaxies. When you chance upon a planet, you can click on it to see what topic the planet has on store. If the topic is of interest, you can click on it again to be linked to the actual wiki page. If the topic isn't of interest of you, you can go back to your scrolling around the breathtakingly depicted universe. You are not able to search for specific content on Wikipedia using this app - this is not what the creators of this app seemed to have had in mind. Instead, you are invited to wander about the galaxy and see what random morsels of knowledge await you.

Nice app for iPad

In my opinion, it's such a good app. I'm just wandering around the 3D galaxy and see some wikipedia contents when I need a kind of meditation. No matter what they are about, Seeing wikipedia is not bad, right?
