Tom Betts, aka Nullpointer, is developer and performer of projects
like Audiopool (a selfsequencing pool of sounds
and the representation of those sounds in 2d space), Dividebyzero
(a self generating experimental website), FSKN
and QQQ (experimental game mods) and Webtracer.
Webtracer is a browser that provides an alternative
visualization of the WWWeb that is focused less on the surface
contents than on the structure and links between web sites. While
the purpose of the softwares analyzing a web site structure is
to verify its integrity, Webtracer aims at giving a visual representation
of the hypertextual structure itself - which is represented as
3-dimensional diagram where pages are nodes (atoms) and the links
are the strings (atomic forces) that bind the links together.
Webtracer has been conceived as an interactive visual tool that
allows the user to analyze on-line information structures, recognizing
the intentions and the principles that lay behind the creation
of a web site and - on a larger scale - behind local configurations
of the Web itself.
