Starting this month I’ll try to post a list of web links I’ve run into in recent weeks and feel obliged to share into web-land.
This month, quite a few inspiring things!
> Webby stuff
- http://www.sublimetext.com/3: the latest version of Sublime Text is currently in beta, but it already looks pretty cool.
- http://worrydream.com/MediaForThinkingTheUnthinkable/: a presentation by creative technologist Brett Victor on ‘Designing a new medium for science and engineering’.
> Information & Data Architecture
- https://github.com/SciGraph/SciGraph: haven’t had a chance to try it, but it looks like this aims to become a Neo4j backed ontology store. Neat!
- http://piggydb.jp/en/d/1: Piggydb is an open source Web note-taking application that provides you with a platform to build your knowledge personally or collaboratively (see also this example of annotations from “Metaphors We Live By” by George Lakoff)
- https://oinker.me/: a chat application to make organized ideas, manage your tasks/projects or share anything with anyone.
- http://www.spicynodes.org: in the making iPad app for browsing big, related data.
- http://www.topicscape.com/: a 3d mind-mapping application, aimed at making personal information management easier.
> Music & Art
- http://www.earslap.com/page/circuli.html: a online generative ambient sound generator. Believe or not, I had it running in the background for hours while working!
- http://stationtostationfilm.com/: an inspiring piece of art composed of 62 individual one-minute films featuring different artists, musicians, places, and perspectives. (also: check out the archive)
- All Aboard the Canal Trip: a BBC documentary-like journey down one of Britain’s most historic waterways, the Kennet and Avon Canal. Warning: highly relaxing!.
