There's a new section on this site that allows to navigate quotations. It's just a cut-down implementation of an old idea I worked on a while ago, but you know.. sometimes it is useful to start from scratch and re-think things from the ground up.
The latest release of SN SciGraph Explorer includes a number of new features that make it easier to navigate the scholarly knowledge graph and discover items of interest.
Navigating through the people of medieval Scotland... one step at a time! This is, in a nutshell, what users can do via the Dynamic Connections Cloud application, a prototype tool I've been working on recently, in the context of the People of Medieval Scotland project (PoMS), which was launched last week at the University of Glasgow.
Just found a very cool app that lets you organize and store the navigation on any mediawiki site, Pathway. It basically represents visually the link's structure of a wiki-page, all the departing nodes centered around the page of interest. The whole navigation can thus be stored in the form of a a net with nodes and links! Developed in Cocoa, works easily and fast on any mac (intel based as well) running Tiger! I quote the author's reasons behind the development:
I wanted to post something about this for a long time, but never got down to it. A random walk through the 20th century is an older narrative/hypermedia system (it dates back to 1996) realized by a bunch of people in MIT around the influence/direction of Glorianna Davenport.
A few notes after reading a seminal paper (1997) by MIT research Glorianna Davenport on 'storyteller systems'. These systems can be seen as the precursors of current systems that support semantic exploration through stories (the only difference is the technology being used). This is a very good article in terms of language, internal references (art, history) and precision - the ideas are presented clearly and succinctly, without indulging too much in the (often boring) details of the technical implementations...
