    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…

    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.

    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.” charles eames 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.

    Liquid Space Layout and interaction suggestions

    This is the suggestion for the top right dialog: View Scale should ideally be text but on mouse over becomes a slider Reset View Save All (Quine) Delete All Copy Current Layout should put layout into Clipboard Upload Layout should upload from Clipboard Connect to Graph should open, as below Suggestion for menu on Mouse over: When clicking Connect to Graph the dialog should fold open and display seeds and also a dialog for adding a URL manually. I suggest rectangular icons for the seeds since that conveys more drag-than lozenge:

    Graph API

    This is a first explanation of the Graph API that I’ve added to this blog to allow it to be explored within our Liquid Space interface. To try it out, go to http://liquidspace.global/ and use the [G] icon in the tools menu, and enter this “endpoint” https://jrnl.global/wp-json/graph-api/v1/query This lets you explore this blog as a graph. Currently it’s really inefficient in several ways, but the ways to optimise it are obvious, but not worth worrying about until after our Demo in December. It also has a feature that lets you request a list of types from the blog, and retrieve nodes by type. I think I want to get rid…

    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…
