Participant in WardsWiki since before 2001



Received a GarminNüvi for Christmas

  • Have become enthused about possibility of integrating HyperArtifacts to include Geographic Coordinates.
    • Some Artifacts are already connected and/or associated with Coordinates
    • I am sure many others can be created to connect to, or associate with other points, actions, or other artifacts
    • While using it in the pedestrian mode, surprisingly it indicated my speed of walking to be about 2.2 mph. It doesn't work inside buildings however

I have continued my work on NysInfo NysWiki NysLte and NysArtifacts while expanding my ideas to include additional PersonalInformationApproaches:

Personally Managed Information via PersonalWiki

  • Problems Encountered in Designing a PersonalInformationSystem
    • How does the user find desired information in the midst of the hundreds or thousands of documents which contain parts of what is desired?
    • Two kinds of decisions
      • What is pertinent
      • How reliable and accurate is the information

One method: UsingSearchEngines

  • Presently burden the user with an overwhelming task of interpreting the information which is presented in capsules out of which one is to determine whether further investigation will be profitable.

InformationClusters

  • Personal information resides in grouping and clusters
    • Discovery of one important item or idea often leads to other helpful information in the same IdeaSpace

InformationOverload

  • ScrollBlindness

InformationCategorization

  • CategorizationOfInformation is an ObviousSolution of how to enable users to better deal with InformationOverload.
  • Traditional approaches to categorization involving taxonomies.
  • These may prove to be too expensive, time-consuming and complex for most users.

LetsLookInto offered suggestions:

  • BuildingOfTaxonomies
  • Use Clusters of Artifacts
    • Just as SuperComputers use Clustering to allow ParallelComputation, the formulation of InformationClusters can allow faster arrival at a targeted AtomOfInformation.

AutomaticClassification

  • It is important that Information be Classified Consistently and Accurately
    • ContextualCategorization
    • ExternalCategorization
    • TaxonomyGeneration

EliminateManualOperations

  • Remove the necessity of relying on manual processing of information
    • Overcome the predicamentOfExponentialGrowth of UnstructuredData

Importance of Autonomy
