‘Mike Hall has taught himself to stretch time. He uses his powers to make him a better squash player. “It’s hard to describe, but it’s a feeling of stillness, like I’m not trapped in sequential time any more,” he says. “The ball still darts around, but it moves around the court at different speeds depending on the circumstances.

CoScripter is an extension to the Firefox browser that captures commands and entries as a person uses the Internet, a process called programming by demonstration. The resulting script appears in a pane of the browser window. In some respects, CoScripter works like the macro recording function of Microsoft Word, but there is a critical difference. Unlike Word macros, CoScripter results can be edited easily because they’re written in understandable language. They can also be shared through a wiki, which minimizes re-invention of internet “wheels.” CoScripter is also useful for repetitive common daily processes on the Web such as checking email, checking flight arrival times and status, or searching for WI-FI hotspots in an area. Key to CoScripter is what the researchers dubbed “sloppy programming.” This means the script is readable both by humans and machines.
