I see in your blog that you are able to use an iframe to transclude a map. It strikes me that the GENIS project could make ready use of that capability. Right now, there is no easily apparent way to know which particular Resource URL to address in a particular iframe for a specific map found at debategraph.org. Is there an easy way to identify a specific map for transclusion?
Thanks for the welcome, David. Simon Buckingham Shum pointed me here. In the past, we've talked about tryingto get something going on argument mapping the climate change debate, and it's great to see things are now gelling. My own background is in that no-man's-land between the environmental science community and the informatics community, so maybe I can help in as an interpreter in both directions.
I'm eager to learn more about your efforts. I will be exploring more over the next week. Right now I am loaded with extra teaching duties, carrying a three-course load vs. the normal two. So I don't have as much time to inhale everything as I would like.
Hi David, Thanks for the welcome. I am interested in community management, collaborative types of work and learning and other areas of Web 2.0. I have worked in tech and telecom and while working in wireless became interested in alt energies (because a network without a source of energy isn't much of a network). -- I was looking at a review of a new book on the evolution of technology and the Internet by Jonathan Zittrain ("The Future of the Internet and How to Stop It") and found a link to your site in one of the comments reviewing the book. -- Your research sounds very interesting. -- By the way, are you on Twitter? It might be another media form to add to your research repertoire. I have been using it for a few months, following people in Web 2.0 and new media areas for the most part. If interested, I am @4byoung if you want to follow. Check out some of the people I follow and see if you want to start by following them.
Also, here's a link to one Twitter user's reason for using Twitter that may resonate with this group: http://preview.tinyurl.com/6axb5x or http://www.stoweboyd.com/message/2008/04/my-twitter-stor.html
Hi David, I've done a quick tour through the profiles, just to get a feel for who is here, and am part way through the forum messages and videos. Over the last few years I've slowly been "brooding" what I recently realized is an "intentional framework" which can help address climate change and sustained earth care, which for me at least provides context for the effort here to provide tools for discourse to make collaborative change more effective. I'll get back with more shortly.
Please forgive my long delay in getting back to your comment. The Apollo energy project was an idea I wanted to present - not just as a technology effort, but as a atotal change in how humans use 'resources' on the planet, and as such goes way beyond a 'simple' moon-shot.
We are treating 'spaceship earth' as if it was designed and intended to serve us - which is a near fatal falacy. Ecosystem services need to be understood and respected - and humans need to quickly, very quickly, figure out how we get this 'mission' back on track.
The preso has a paper that goes with it (more technical) but these iseas should be built on.
Thank you for welcoming me David. I think that some kind of paradigm shift in semantic identification can lead to a dramatic improvement of collective intelligence in cyberspace, and ultimately to a leap in human development.
