Hyperbolic Desktop

Imagine a computer screen on which objects shrink as you drag them towards the edge, like in an Escher painting. There's room for an infinite amount of stuff, so you never have to put away anything (file icons, windows, etc.). It can all stay on the desktop, all the time. And the singular point (where things shrink to nothing, which you can never reach in a finite length of time) could be in the center, if preferred. Hmmmm!
