What are some of the strange and wonderful ideas we have for metamaps?
fully functional API
map creation through audio input
veqtor.cc-style entities, where maps are entities. gets closer to emulating the brain. (even without having the website code itself be an entity!)
Conversational graph queries like "what projects is Robert Best working on?" performed through metamaps or slack or other channels
Powerful graph analysis capabilities
cognitive computing integration
Simple import via UI of data via APIs of other platforms like Twitter or facebook
3D graph navigation (@harlan)
Auto conversion of bodies of text into a map/graph
Use of a distributed database
Full Semantic Web compatibility
pwn google. err alphabet
What have been some interesting instances where metamaps has been used?
mapping the minutes from a meeting
mapping a job search (i trialed this 3 years ago at the working centre, and now i’m doing it again right now). ideas, people, locations, opportunities, prior knowledge, and leads can all be mapped & connected.
live knowledge capture
definitely ecosystem mapping
personal life planning
How can we summarize "good" usage of metamaps "start to finish"?
1. add knowledge (import or manual) (“start solo”, in KI parlance)
2. collaborate (commons maps, video chat, real time)
3. make connections (synapses + realtime collaboration)
4. build stories (i guess you show someone a map in real time, or move the synapses to make an aesthetically pleasing layout - e.g. geoff’s map explaining the canoe JCUP @ metamaps.cc/maps/2023)
i would add to the above .5 start with a focus for your map (get creative!)
Yeah, and with 2. we could be more specific: Share your map, and get others to work with you (either by setting it Commons or inviting collaborators)
