Hi. I moving from this blog to a difograph (a word I’ve coined to describe dynamic information graphs). In my opinion difographs could be the next thing after ebooks and blogs. Please join me at the smithy. The short URL web address is http://debategraph.org/thesmithy
dynamic mapping of information (dmoi) as I use the term is a possible future for all kinds of digital Sharing. it is a form of information mapping which uses movement. It’s part of a larger topic for which I started a map last year. It occurs to me that its time may have come so here’s the question it raises and tries to start to answer and the link: “How will I (the individual) manage knowledge Sharing, Gathering, Management and (re)Sharing in an era of Cloud-based services, the Semantic and Social Webs and touch-screen enabled, network-connected devices?” http://debategraph.org/Stream.aspx?nID=59102&iv=5
As you can see I use Debategraph‘s Cloud-based system for my maps (sometimes experimentally) at the moment. You can find my personal map here and here’s a link to the “digital publishing – Future B” map which is specifically about digital sharing in the context of publishing. All these maps are optimized for Flash.
Here’s a link to a Gulf Oil Spill 2010 map which, although I didn’t start it for that reason, has turned into an example of how maps could be used for news. It also links up to a Global Environment map from which you can reach a map I’ve put together for 350.org. I hope this will become a network of environmental organizations.
