    Tools to bring together people, data and analyses to support collaborative communities and boundary crossing interactions. Longer Description The Exaptive Platform is a set of tools for facilitating cross-disciplinary innovation. The Exaptive Studio is a modular programming environment that makes it easier for the tools and techniques from one discipline to be applied in other fields and creatively appropriated for other use-cases. The Exaptive Cognitive City leverages metadata from the Studio, as well incorporating metadata from other external sources, to dynamically build networks based on the work people do and to recommend collaboration and teams optimized for ideation and innovation. Related to Doug’s Vision Doug dedicated his career to the vision that humans and computers working together…

    Things to have relationships with in the glossary

    So, we have this now in Liquid | Flow. Select text, keyboard shortcut for the menu and then simply ‘g’ for Add to Glossary. In this case I’ve added Chris: At the bottom we have this pop-up for relationships which is are so far only relationship terms for concepts. But what about for other types of entries, such as people (in the case of Chris), places, documents, things, projects, companies and so on? How should we organise the types? For example, if the entry is about a person, we should have at least these options for defining the relationship with another entry: Works with Works for Works on Created Created…

    Liquid Space

    A live, deeply interactive and connective web based thinking environment. The Liquid Space Project is based on the insight that if you change the view of your information you change our perspective and gain insights. The benefit of using non-linear, freeform environments to lay out thoughts or concepts has a long history in augmented thought, from the basic post-it notes on the wall and the Japanese KJ-Ho Method, to the elaborate ‘murder wall’s on TV shows where the protagonist is trying to get their head around wildly disparate aspects of a situation. The rationale is that this method employs the users occipital lobe to augment their prefrontal cortex. Digital systems…

    Marc-Antoine Parent

    Marc-Antoine Parent will present the Hyperknowledge protocol. He has studied some neurobiology, mathematics, computational linguistics and systems science. He’s worked on one of the first grammar checkers for French, tree visualization, semantic models for automatic translation, and more recently a collective intelligence platform, IdeaLoom. While working on an earlier version of IdeaLoom, he has developed an interoperability protocol for Collective Intelligence platforms within the Catalyst project.

    Personal Hypertext Report #9

    Finally, I’ve managed to get the “change_tracking_text_editor_1” capability working reliable enough for beta testing and prepared a downloadable package: hypertext-systems.org/downloads.php. Java 1.6 or higher is required. A description of the tool/capability can be found in this video. From here, plenty of very interesting options to extend it present themselves, but I find important to point out that in my opinion, tracking the development of a text is fundamental for a hypertext system and serious writing on a computer. Without it, versioning and revision can only be done retrospectively with heuristical diffs as after-the-fact analysis, which can be wrong and lacks information like the order of changes or changes that later…

    Jeff Conklin

    Dr. Jeffrey Conklin, Director, has over two decades of experience and an international reputation in the fields of hypertext and collaborative technology research, and years of professional experience as a facilitator, consultant, and teacher. He is fascinated with the interplay between technology and social systems. Dr. Conklin is perhaps best known for his work with the Issue Based Information System (IBIS) method and extensions of it, such as research tools (“gIBIS”) and commercial products (“CM/1™”, “QuestMap™”) that support IBIS. He is advisor to the Compendium Institute, which distributes the open source Compendium mapping tool. Dr. Conklin also developed the Dialogue Mapping™ facilitation technique, a radically inclusive approach to knowledge management…
