Brainstorming Made Simple - Mind Mapping Online
This is an experiment, an alternative way to represent blog posts, as a graph. Click this if you want to get back to the plain list.
The idea is that if you encounter a blog, it's often unclear how to start reading it: typically it's an overwhelming linear list of posts, ordered by date. (thanks Jonathan for bringing my attention to it!)
Representing as a graph allows to relax this linear structure by introducing a partial order (shown by edges). You can start reading from a title that seems most interesting to you, and keep exploring the related posts.
- clicking on a post title brings you to the post
- clicking on a tag will bring you to the description of the tag
- clicking on a date will highlight all connections to the corresponding post, to make the navigation easier
- clusters correspond to 'themes' (although it's pretty fuzzy)
If you have any ideas on improving this page, or notice any problems, please let me know! You can find the source here.
This is the sort of thing that Maggie Appleton and the digital gardens gang would appreciate.
I try to unload all information that has any meaning to me from my brain to external storage because I don’t like to rely on my memory nor do I trust it. In this blog post, I’m going to describe my current approach of working with a personal knowledge base.
