CSS and Fashion

An intriguing question regarding the nature of aesthetics online; fashion vs function. It asks the question I dread  (as it suggests that I may have to upgrade to ‘Pro’ for my blogging needs) and that is ‘how much can code actually express’ (at the 2:45 min marker), and that code is art (in all CAPS, so it is ‘serious’ stuff).  I wish all discussion of code and style was this energetic and passionate, and littered with pop cultural references I instantly get, in contrast to the literature slog. There is nothing like memetics for that sweet heuristcal nuance (more on these terms soon). Let’s stay positive about digital expression people, youtube Idea Channel for the win! Gesamtkunstwerk!

ps. There is also a Brazilian band called CSS (cansei de ser sexy), whose track CSS suxxx (also the title of their blog, filled with cats) I have included for the sake of academic rigour, would not want to get them confused ;p
