A change in navigation.


For the past few years, I have been using “INTERFACE 2037 READY FOR INQUIRY” as a sub-heading for blog posts, and “INTERFACE 2037 DISCONNECT” at the end of each post to close it out.

I always thought it was a cool thing since that “INTERFACE 2037” text is so iconic, but I have made a change that is a little more logical, considering the way you navigate the site through the Overmonitoring Address Matrix (OAM).

Since you reach the The Nostromo Files Blog by way of the hyperlink at the top right of the OAM (“BLOG”), it seems logical that the sub-header should reflect that hyperlink title, the same way that it happens on screen when Dallas selects “INTERFACE 2037” and it takes him to a screen that says, “INTERFACE 2037 READY FOR INQUIRY”.

My blog posts are not really interactive, so it is not really an “inquiry” screen for communicating.

It is a one-way communication to you, the reader.

So you will notice now that the Blog hyperlink is “BLOG DC2964”. When you click that link, the new post sub-header will be “>BLOG DC2964 // POST BEGINS<“, and it will end with “>BLOG DC2964 // POST ENDS<“.

Is this decision a product of over-thinking? I’ll let you be the judge. Pixels are cheap, so if I get negative feedback on the new sub-header, I can always switch back.

Thanks for reading…
