I see this new way to design web sites in two phases:
  1. writing content to be put on the web somewhere, and
  2. automatically determining where it goes
We already pretty much have the first phase when we say that the HTML from a thought is the content to go somwhere on the website.

The second phase requires some kind of artificial intelligence to organize the website.  This is something that can certainly evolve … and apparently is not going to evolve very fast,  for example why is it taking The Grid so long to just manifest it. 

I suggest that we provide the templates and themes for where stuff can go on a website.  That is pretty much off the shelf technology after all.  Then all we need do is to define how a thought targets a area within the template of themes.  Once that is there then putting the publish button on the thought is just the plugin.   Right?

Then we can let the automatic generation of the template and/or theme start to evolve.

Yes. I pretty much agree. The markdown editing system I built just before working on this project (the one you pooed all over) was exactly that. A great step in the direction. It allowed you to write templates in very simple markdown, markdown so easy anyone can learn it, and insert any content from anywhere. Not true AI, but way simpler than wordpress or any other template system. It was inspired by The Grid.
i have no idea what that could be.

incidentally does the template pull the thoughts … ie you put which thought to use in the template …. or … do you designate in a thought where it goes in the template structure ?   There would be a big difference in how it felt to grow a website if you have to go edit a template … rather than just write a thought and say in the thought where it will go.

For here, simple markdown in the thought would tell where it went in the template and provide a few simple engllish language based styling variations.

yes ok markdown to designate where it went in the web structure.

but would not the rte have already provided any styling variations that were necessary?

For the content it self, most likely. But not for the template area. Sometimes template areas have styling options available that control how they look and play with the other areas of the template. Generally the defaults are good and you personally would probably never need them, but there are always those people who want things just so! Especially on things like home pages.
