• Post Format for hyperGlossary

    In order to allow for the desired  interaction there must be a format for the authoring application, whether WordPress web or Liquid Author to send this to the WordPress post for special viewing like this if the template supports it or as a basic use for non-optimised templates. I suggest: some text and then the term which in this case is fish (⋮ a marine animal that swims https://jrnl.global/2018/11/30/fish/ ⋮) with other text to follow to better show context This means that by default a short definition is shown with a link to the full definition but the plugin or theme can parse this (based on ⋮ by the closing and opening bracket) to…

  • HyperGlossary In-Document

    The design of what happens when a document with glossary terms attached is published to WordPress is difficult since there are so many ways it could be handled and there should be degrees of reveal for the reader without the reader being confused: It should be possible to not have any glossary text visible, to have the short definition visible and to access the full definition and then the full graph connected kahuna. Visual tests There should be a way to indicate that certain text has a glossary term available for reading but which is not opened up (in brackets to show the short definition). See are some tests using…

  • Posting Dialogue with In-Situ short definition

    I was reading Tom’s book for the Economist this morning and there was a normal Economist style sentence which defined a term. It was something like this: “Cap-Gemini, a consulting form,” and it seemed such a great display style of the short definition so let’s have the form be like this, with many of the fields having suggestions for content to help the user:   When the user starts writing the Short Definition though, it appears alongside the title, staying horizontally centered,  to help the user write it in a style which would work as an auto-inserted description after a comma: However, the issue comes up that if the term…

  • Glossary Thoughts & Notes

    Notes on the glossary project, to be either named Liquid Glossary or hyperGlossary.  Project website: https://hyperglossary.info Relates to Doug’s Work Provides a glossary capability Makes authoring less repetitive Connects different views and systems Glossary Entry Creation The glossary entries can be created and stored as WordPress blog post articles with special, though human-understandable formatting. The author can create an entry in WordPress by simply assigning the Category ‘[Glossary Entry]’ and that’s it. The user can also use external systems to create the entry in order to add further, useful meta-data, such as this in Liquid | Flow: In this way the user can add a short and (optional) long definition and…

  • Webleaux / Dynamic View / Murder Wall (name to be decided – it became Liquid Space)

    In chats with Christopher today we went through what the dynamic view he is working on should really be for and how it should look and behave. We agreed that it should be a way for someone to analyse a series of web pages, by default the blog you are on but with support for any web pages to be pasted in (augmented/hypercopy/citation link copy). Initial work will show blog posts (or pre-prepared for demo) which can be arranged at will and comments being possible to add on the fly. The resulting graphical view will be saveable as a blog post (future). Presented By Christopher Gutteridge

  • HyperKnowledge

    Hyperknowledge allows to build a federated ecosystem of knowledge work tools. It is based on an event sourcing model of generalized concept graphs, which can model structured data or documents. High-level events are interpreted into micro-events by distributed components, allowing for ad-hoc event model extensibility; components can enrich data reactively; inter-process subscription allows reactive transclusion. Longer Description We will present work in progress on the hyperknowledge protocol. We are developing infrastructure for a federated document and concept graph model, HyperKnowledge. We want to establish a Web of Knowledge. This allows to see how any idea is connected with other ideas in debates, through evidence, citations, influence, consequences, etc. The long-term goal is…

  • Initial Project Overview
