Participative Projects and Popularity: Ze Frank described his many creative projects, finishing this way: "A lot of what I've done has been random, but there are a few things I've held true to. One is intimacy. I email everyone back who emails me. I talk in the first person on the site. The other thing is that I don't use any humor that insults anyone else but me. I'd rather see more humor that's self-deprecating than sarcastic and biting. Simplicity, obviously. Having limitations. And also ambiguity. I've experienced this site as a linear process. A lot of people come to the site and experience it as a whole. I have an nsFAQ, not so frequently asked questions in which I list all of the questions but none of the answers. You can make up myths about yourself. You can work on your own self-perception in a way." (from Heath Row's transcript)
