Webactions, information overload and art

Catching up on some of the things that have been codefied as 'theory' in web development. 

Starting off with the concept of Web Actions - the things that a website would like you to do with their content. This seems so simple but it speaks to this idea that content is meant to be used and shared - in a commercial setting. Which is to say, we create websites and content to make something happen. I can't decide if that's 'making money' or 'sharing ideas' or 'making money and sharing ideas'. 

At the same time, I'm also thinking about information overload.
