• after the 9th

    We had a fantastic Saturday together on the 8th, with many participating in person and Gyuri, Timour, Irina and Shane joining us online: thefutureoftext.org/8-december-2018.html The 9th was marked by a large celebration at the Computer History Museum, where we all demoed alongside such luminaries as Ted Nelson and Tim Berners-Lee: So where do we go from here? We have all had some time to settle down from the events (and the work leading up to them), so we now need to decide how to move forward. It’s been suggested that we ‘eat our own dogwood’ and that we should therefore use Exaptive and KnowFlow, which I personally agree with. I…

  • Meeting w Vint today

    We met with Vint today based on our plan. We did not record, which was a little silly. We started with this view of the project and this view is indeed our project, a webtableux with these view settings. We went through the high resolution citation copying and Gyuri’s knowledge system and discussed meeting on the 8th of December, the day before the big day of the 9th. Next step is Cairo demo on the 14th of October.

  • Cairo

    Our goals for the 14th of November, when I present to Ismail in Cairo, is to have the following working: High resolution copy working in more browsers with author identification integrated into jrnl Communication between Chris’ and Gyuri’s visual graphs Quick search of own articles

  • 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. Try the current work in progress here: http://www.soton.ac.uk/~totl/webleau/ The webleau idea is based on an older tool I made, wiki explorer, which was a tool for exploring wikipedia, linked data and other graphs of information. It used <canvas> and didn’t save well, nor did I really think about how to load/save things. None…

  • 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…

  • 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

  • Thursday 18th of October call

    We need to focus more on what we can do with the blue dot menu and what we need to re-code and what effort that will be. I had to leave early which was a shame but Marc-Antoine and Robert joined us. We will also need to design all the functionality we feel should be done: Copy As Citation Shane is using Chris’ code for this. What effort is left? Also, can we simply add to the Copy command so it’s always copied as citation with high resolution addressing?… Dynamic List View Chris would like to build a powerful list view for queries. Frode would like this as well but…
