these days i am enjoying headmap. i would give it a SL of 1.5
The space, the social network, thinking tools and the network interface in the same field of view. The boundaries between what is interior and what is exterior intersecting tangibly in front of your eyes.
there are notes in boxes that are empty
every room has an accessible history
every place has emotional attachments you can open and save
you can search for sadness in new york
people within a mile of each other who have never met stop what they are doing and organise spontaneously to help with some task or other.
in a strange town you knock on the door of someone you don’t know and they give you sandwiches.
paths compete to offer themselves to you
life flows into inanimate objects
the trees hum advertising jingles
everything in the world, animate and inanimate, abstract and concrete, has thoughts attached

Urban Tapestries is a framework for understanding the social, cultural, economic and political implications of pervasive location-based mobile and wireless systems.
this reminds me of jo walsh. like slapping a commercial label on her pioneering work. overlays to augment physical spaces, yummy!!
i got the mindmanager x5 schemas:
meanwhile, the RDF schema for FOAF. now, to find ways to map between XSD and RDFS here are normalization rules as a start.
||R->type definition N->element name
|complex type definition
||rdfs:SubClassOf ->type definition
|complex type definition
||N->complex type name or ->type definition + "_class"
||R->type definition N->attribute name
|Attribute group definition model group definition
||Class: N->group name + "_class" Property: N->group name R->group (class)
||rdfs:Class + rdfs:Property (definition)
||N->attribute wildcard + "_value" R->rdfs:Literal
|simple type definition
why is this useful? how would you like to edit RDF data (FOAF’?) in mindmanager?
here are some questions i got from michael scherotter, development manager for mindmanager x5 Pro about the future direction of the product. they are looking at innovative uses of mindmanager, and how to leverage XML. i suggested that Mindmanager might be a tool to help build the semantic web. but read michael’s questions, and opine away.
- What kind of tool and services built on MindManager X5 Pro would you like to see developed for the semantic web?
- Do you see MindManager X5 Pro as a tool for building the semantic web, visualizing it, or both?
- What software, systems, and companies use OPML?
update: some comments by the trackback-challenged ben. are you hinting at a buyout?
i came across some worthwhile articles on XML design patterns recently:
Mark Lombardi (1951-2000) draws on the major political and financial scandals of the day to create large-scale linear diagrams that at first glance look like celestial maps; a closer reading reveals the intricate web of connections that lurk beneath current headlines.
i played around with foafnaut some more.
i also added <link rel=”meta” type=”application/rdf+xml” title=”FOAF” href=”foaf.rdf” /> to my templates for the use of harvesters. i guess sometime in the future i will regret this spam-inducing move..
It’s hard to believe Google – which is now the world’s largest single online marketplace – came on the scene only a little more than 8 years ago, back in the days when Amazon and Ebay reigned supreme. So how did Google become the world’s single largest marketplace?
from the most excellent ftrain.com in retrospect, i wish we had picked paul over some other speakers for oscom 3.
the components are all there.
can we bring it all together, and produce something that goes beyond “gee look i can take pictures”? we will hopefully find out this summer, at a mobile semantics hackathon in zurich. let me know if you are interested, and what you could contribute.
i installed mozilla calendar today and am now publishing my schedule. rss feeds are available. with some more work this should allow others to subscribe to my schedule and make it much easier to find dates and places to meet. when i learn a bit more, i want to play around with iCal to RDF and RDF to iCal converters. next: collecting gps coordinates, and putting them in a metadata feed (or should that be meatdata).
