• Webleau progress (Liquid Space)

    Hi, this is a quick update on Webleau (Web Tableau) part of my suite of ideas for how I’d like information systems to work. A guiding principle for me is that people should be able to get a feel for what’s going on and it should be “easy to do the right thing”, rather than a chore.

  • Vint Update

    In tomorrow’s meeting with Vint, Chris, Gyuri and Shane we will be talking about: Citation copying which are high resolution copies with author information and other meta data by Chris, to be shown on this page. Graphical views of blogs, essential two riffs of what I was working on with Dynamic Views which both Chris and Gyuri have worked on independently and which we will work to integrate. This also touches on the hyperGlossary work and the work the knowledge graph group is working on. Search Own Blog. We will also briefly discuss how themes can help some of the issues of finding ones own work for inclusion in new…
