About spread sheets

: OTOH might spreadsheet users often suffer the same problem as urbanists described in SpaceVsInformationFlows. After a while the 2D spatial layout inhibits further abstraction to the real information flows in the spreadsheet. It gets hard to escape the constraints and conventions of the sheet metaphor. Guess this is always the problem of metaphors, but it would be nice if there was some imaginative thinking on this in spreadsheets. Is anything happening here?
