The conventions of drama present the planned as spontaneous, stimulating the imagination of greater interaction potential than there is. This paper argues for a distinction between design for demonstration and design for interaction. The distinction is needed on the Internet, which supports the greatest range of discourse -- spontaneous to planned -- and therefore wide scope for confusing dramatic presentation for effective interaction.
