TrailMarks Post on TrailMarks

 

Blaze trails with @TrailMarks as you search and annotate the web using @hypothes_is . Link annotations to your narratives as you “connect the dots”. Share narrative trails as posts with searchable HyperMaps giving the “entire scaffolding by which they were erected”.

“Eventually everything connects — people, ideas, objects. The quality of the connections is the key to quality per se.”

Trailmarks lets you extend the frontiers of your knowledge as you blaze trails across the Web annotated by Hypothes.is. In collaboration with the Liquid Space project we are aiming to  turn WordPress into a community-knowledge sharing platform.

Like the  MEMEX, TrailMarks let’s you weave narrative trails to augment your ability to understand and to be understood.  By providing a single place to record and keep all your ideas as creating meaningful contexts by the way you link and “connect the dots” as you author “Linked Text“.

The Augmented Authoring provisions in Trailmarks can help you to keep a pace with the speed of your thoughts. The personal records that you write once and recall in all relevant contexts, works like your brain, through associations by ensuring that text  links to all relevant contexts. this goes beyond non-linear writing as it also uses transclusion of statements from other “dots”. You share and collaborate on entire connected body of selected contexts as “Linked Text”. You can then convey your understanding along with the scaffolding with which they were erected.

TrailMarks  is a minimal viable Personal Knowledge Augmentation Tool powered by
MindGraph,  Linked Text and  Opidox‘s Personal Knowledge Hub.
It is being bootstrapped using the Decentralized Web or Web 3.0 protocols by Protocol Labs,  and technologies like the Inter Planetary File System(IPFS) and OrbitDB.
It brings together a set of Personal Knowledge Management capabilities that can empower the individual while ensuring data sovereignty.
Our hope is that it may well be a “killer app”  for the
Decentralized Web or Web 3.0
