thank you so much for these links, I already had short glimpse into and liked it very much. The structure generation with
the relationmatrix is a fantastic feature. The savegame implementation is
exactly the thing I was hoping for because it gives you the chance to
understand other people's kind of navigation through information as well as
it lets you create your personal path. Here the site stands back and watches
the users unfold, the opposite thing usually happens with other
(hierarchical, predefined) websites. Great!
