"the key feature of computer space is its navigability".
Lev Manovich, Language of New Media

The navigation possibilities on the internet seem infinite. Like a network of highways. A navigation in information. link, link, pick a link.
In the computer game you navigate through levels, through what seems like rooms, through the virtual of the reality. Turn, turn make a turn. Perhaps the key feature of the computerspace is not that different from the key feature of life:
a Game of Navigation.
