I’m trying to use Dive as more of a jumping-off point, i.e., an actual dive into a huge complexity–as opposed to an actual menu system to navigate a web site.
My project is using the web page to demonstrate one simple answer to tens of thousands of problems, hundreds of thousands, even a million problems.
Right now I have the 100,000s umbrella-ed under 64 categories. I’d like to use the Dive Stack to build out the 64, and each of the 64 menu items would then link to a scientific database that’s continuously documenting and updating the problem count.
My hope is to quickly overwhelm my site visitors with the unending, ever-growing complexity so as to steer them even quicker to the One Simple Answer.
I suppose an analogy would be when you find a loose thread on your sweater, and you quickly yank it to break it off, but all you do is start an unending unraveling, and then all you want to do is stuff the genie back in the bottle.
My initial Dive button would be one small, unobtrusive button. A tab would open four menu items, plus a link back to TheOneAnswer. A tap on each of the four would open 6 more or 8 more or 10 more, and each one of those would open up still more, but within each would be a shortcut link back to TheOneAnswer.
My intent is to use Dive as a graphic tool so that it creates a simplified version of something like this, x1000:
Or maybe x10,000.
