Mainly testing to see whether this endures beyond 16 April when it expires on ABC iView. But Sarah Blasko is also great.

I like the Metamaps tool for mindmapping because you can specify custom relationships.

It shares some ancestry with my own project, sembl.net – which is (so far!) a social mindmapping game rather than a tool. They're both inspired by Herman Hesse's fictional glass bead game.

Last night I consulted the Yi Jing about my fledgling sembl.net, a game of analogy to augment perception.

It said hexagram 16: elephant – auspicious and thundering – only I need help. Yeauhhuh. Henceforth I seek thundering elephants to join my (anti-violent, anti-authoritarian, humanitarian) army. I know you're out there. Please be in touch.

In the aftermath of the PeaceApp contest, I wrote this blogpost called Peace is a bridge. Then I came upon the emerging  #bethebridge  movement – http://www.bethebridge.co

I'm thinking to set up a game and invite people to play for peace on/around 6 January. Interested? Let me know and I'll tell you more.

I cannot tell you how readable the book of nature is becoming for me; my long efforts at deciphering, letter by letter, have helped me; now all of a sudden it is having its effect, and my quiet joy is inexpressible.

Semantic web enthusiasts, I need your feedback. Seems to me like there's a significant difference between linked data that defines What a Thing Is and linked data that defines A Thing's Relationship To Another Thing. And that RDF triples are great at the former but fraught for the latter. Comment?
