How will astute sensemaking tools and practices leave the circle of specialists and have the intended impact on conventional practice? While several members of this community are successfully working on this agenda, by evolving suitable social organization in journalism, science and education, including new media and practices, we can make a significant step forward.

As part of a much larger open source collective intelligence platform, an IBIS extension has been created for MediaWiki. The development website for it is found here
. What you can navigate at this time starts from an index of conversations. Each conversation has its own home page with an explanation (motivation) for the conversation followed by any responses, which, typically, are issues raised. That format is similar… Continue

The EPSRC-funded Advanced Knowledge Technologies
Consortium ran 2000-06. The final demonstrator of all the technologies coming together centred on an emergency response scenario. Compendium served as the sensemaking hub around an aircraft crash on London, envisioning how a response coordination team might use Compendium overlaid on a GIS, to keep track of events and actions, in concert with a diverse set of AKT semantic web services.
I’ve just got… Continue

* margin notes are in fact what we call Ideas

Folks I've been off on a rather different though connected planet for the last 12 months, seconded out of my usual role to direct an 'under the radar' project called SocialLearn
here at Open U. GlobalSensemaking and ESSENCE got rather put on ice for me, so apols for not being around much or being unresponsive. We're now coming out from our 'cloaked' status and starting to blog about what we've been up to, which was, and… Continue

I've lived largely outside of web-based communication and dialogue networks as I worked in these mostly… Continue
