I need a piece of software, or a pattern or structure, for solidifying ideas. For putting more meat on something that starts out vague or abstract. Let's say I decide I'm interested in "Patterns of Upliftment" or "Communities of Virtue", but I might not even quite know what that means. Then, when I go through life, or through the web, I might notice "Aha, that's an example of ___" or "That's a good definition of ___" or "Oh, those people are studying ___". And I want to file it with my focus subject. It should be in a format I can easily share, on a webpage, so others can come along and see the idea getting more substantial, and maybe contribute to it. Well, there is Wiki-Wiki, which allows easy posting and updating by multiple people. But I suppose I'm looking for something that actually guides me towards a convergence, a clarification or solidification of the subject matter. A Wiki-Wiki would tend to encourage divergence, creating new branches. A piece of paper doesn't work, because I can't find the original sheet again when I happen to run into a piece of the puzzle I'm trying to assemble.

Flemming -- how about putting it and having it processed by an ontological parser? Which then (a) gives you an option of the categories that it can fit into and (b) learns your preferred patterns and (c) displays it in a 3-D flow form -- a combination of the effects at http://www.timemap.net and http://www.thebrain.com (and for relationship chains that at http://www.touchgraph.com )

Hm, yeah, that's the kind of thing I'm talking about. Essentially a flexible way of building up an ontology, without having to figure it all out at the same time. But then again, what IS an onlogical parser?

I agree that (plot-wise) Bell came back to reassure Walter that not only is he *not* Walternate, he's capable of fighting Walternate without Bell's help. I think for Bell personally, it was for him to accept his own mortality and move on to whe9;vertas next.

12/11/2012 - 1:Rntm2ealme0pe lo de Mourinho es aberrante, lo que se dice “saludar con sombrero ajeno”. Si ya pareciera que Morata metió gol porque Mourinho le movía los hilos. ¡Qué gente!Yo me quedo con las declaracionesde Mourinho en la rueda de prensa: “¿El árbitro? Bien. Sólo se puede hablar del linier que se equivocó en el gol del Levante que fue en fuera de juego.” Claro, si se equivocan a tu favor, nunca es equivocación.
