"Model-Based Reasoning in Scientific Discovery" (how I develop creative info interfaces) including the role of abduction, visualization, and simulation...diagrammatic representations, visual analogy, visual, spatial, imagistic modeling and reasoning.

"Fair use is not a doctrine that exists by sufferance, or that is earned by good works and clean morals; it is a right--codified in § 107 and recognized since shortly after the Statute of Anne--that is "necessary to fulfill copyright's very purpose, '[t]o promote the Progress of science and the useful arts . . . .'" http://www.corante.com/copyfight/archives/003214.html

What would be the visualization equivalent of doing this?..."in lay terms, for this record i spent countless hours going through my hard drive, opening up random data files in an audio program as though they were sound files. i listened to this data-as-audio, picked my favorite sounds, & only then did i begin the long process of making the actual music out of those sounds."
or this...
Over the last ten years, Daniel Barrow has been developing the art of “manual animation.” Using an overhead projector, Barrow manipulates cartoon images printed on mylar transparencies in a new type of cell animation, accompanying his two-dimensional minions with a live monologue or, in the case of the Hidden Cameras’ “A Miracle” video, good old-fashioned pop music.
or this...
But it is in her live performances that she really shines. Not content just to provide visual wallpaper or rapidly cutting strobe effects, Bennett samples sound and image simultaneously, layering them into a richly detailed live collage ­ “a living cinema.” A visual musician, Bennett pulls everything into the mix, from industrial advertising to
old B-movie Westerns and mental hygiene films, and comes out with a toe-tapping audiovisual stew.

Idea to change transparency settings when zooming in; simulating fade to different information (layer?).
