Tag Clouds are increasingly web 2.0 technology seen on many sites and blogs.
Some months back, I was posting some thoughts that seem relevant here, although I was working more from a perspective that thoughts need to support multiple thought types.
Thoughts in a plex can have numerous interpretations based upon link context. A thought-type might make perfect sense in the context of one set of links, and be quite innappropriate to another set of links, but both sets can co-exist in the same plex. This creates an otherwise unnecessary effort to come up with a thought type (or thought type scheme) that will work for both sets. To get around this, I suggested that thought types are most meaningful in relation to the thought's links, and that
PB might benefit if thoughts could have an unlimited number of thought types as properties, and if the thought type displayed could be dependent upon the link type context.
What would that look like? Perhaps a thought might have a small cloud of thought/link type properties hovering about it, with each property in proximity to the link for which it is relevant.
I'm quite interested in the suggestion of another view, my approach was to augment the existing views. I also see more examples in Josef's second post above for the value of both an intelligent plex space and an attribute database:
Be vewy quiet. I'm hunting wabbit.
