Experimenting with a new style of World as a Blog, using Buckminster Fuller’s Dymaxion projection. From the Buckminster Fuller Institute….
The Dymaxion Map is the only flat map of the entire surface of the earth that reveals our planet as it really is an island in one ocean without any visible distortion of the relative shapes and sizes of the land areas, and without splitting any continents.
Heavy lifting thanks to Geo::Dymaxion.
This spring, I have been monitoring bird populations at Heron’s Head Park — a wetlands restoration site in the heavily polluted Bayview neighborhood of San Francisco. I’ve seen many amazing birds, including Great Egrets.
Last week, this egret flew in for a role reversal. He’s standing on the back deck of my apartment, in the middle of the city, monitoring the humans. While I stood amazed, Anna reacted quickly, grabbed her camera, and took this great pic.
This idea has been burning a hole in my pocket, since pre-etcon.
With much talk of the network of HTML links driving an intelligent emergent system, it seems the links themselves can tell more of a story. I like the ideas of adding opinion metadata to do links.
That is explicit information. What about information implicit in the network. BBC did a very interesting study and then launch, of behaviorally modifying links. The more you click, the more pronounced the color. Would it be possible to extend the model to reacting to network behavior?
So, straightforward, more active links could be big and red and quiet links could small and blue, or whatever you like. These links change their character depending on their usage.
Hopefully this makes sense? Always easier to explain an idea through actual demonstration, but I don’t have the spare time at the moment to code this up.
