    2. The Intention Economy by Doc Searls on March 8, 2006

    1. The intention economy is an approach to viewing markets and economies focusing on buyers as a scarce commodity. Customers' intention to buy drives the production of goods to meet their specific needs. It is also the title of Doc Searls book: The Intention Economy: When Customers Take Charge published in May, 2012.

    2. Our proposed algorithm, which we call RDFSync, works by decomposing RDF graphs in minimal subsets of triples and then creating hashes that can be sorted and efficiently synchronized. In this way, we will show how the RDFSync algorithm can exhibit on RDF models the same behavior of rsync for general data files: as long as the number of triples involved in changes is small compared to the size of the entire model, as is the case for frequent updates, the network traffic and the computational  power required for the synchronization will be very small

    1. “I for one carry on his work by keeping the links outside the file, as he did.” The inclusion of this technical reference in a eulogy shows the depth of commitment of both men to an unrealized ideal. In all the dreams of hypertext, from Otlet and Bush to Nelson and Englebart, users were able to build and explore shared trails, but that’s not the realized model.

      That's why you need to keep the links outside the file Sharing trails. e.g. learning path and have bi-directional links between the source of the idea and it's use

    4. What seems strange is to see those who first described the semantic web ignore the human sideof the interface. Do we have so little faith in understanding our (human) thinking that we onlytrust black-box algorithms to divine the meaning?

      trust only black box to divine meaning

      machines are clueless rather shape humans into the mold that can be made explicit

    5. Somehow the human part of the socio-technical social machines has been forgotten. This shift isseen as clearly in Hendler & Mulvehill’sSocial Machines[173], though there is a chapter on ‘TheLimits [sic] of Humans’, this is clearly a technologists machine lead view of social machines

    1. Joking aside, I wanted to ask two things. One how much you are into the Semantic Web. I found some, new reasons for a serious ranting related to Blank Nodes, that I am eager to share. This is relevant to my present efforts of setting out MindGraph as an alternative, sane tessellation of a Knowledge Graph. https://hypothes.is/a/FaoMGLbrEeuWI68EL2K8Mg Blanks nodes are there as kludge to fix the inherent problem with Subject Predicate Object triples as the units of tessellation.

    5. Large, unstructured, wiki-type hypertexts can be so much more than a bunch of discrete articles.

    17. Right now, we are defining a data model and event-based protocol for expressing these topic maps and their accompanying conceptual graph, and allowing a mixed ecosystems of information appliances to produce, combine and enrich this global concept graph, and hope to work on experimentation with semantically enriched text

      HyperKnowledge + TrailMarks + IndieHub = Indywiki

    18. It is also much richer than semantic entity identification, as we may want to identify higher-order semantic entities, such as links between concepts.

      richer than semantic identification because it weaves a semantically enriched fabric of conversational elements

    19. This is a much higher requirement than traditional hypertext backlinks, because for very rich conversations, there will be a large number of related topics, that we would want to group in semantic clusters (or at the very least de-duplicate.)

      beyond backlink introducing high resolution self explicating bidirectional linked text

    20. sometimes, a key topic in the text is identified only long after it was written

      so you introduce at the right point int the structured TrailMarked Text a tralmark:

    22. Enriching texts with concepts anchors could be done at the moment of writing or afterwards, including on someone else’s tex

      That's what a TrailMark as an inter tectual intent/semantic mark down notational device accomplishes

    23. Hovering on the topic marker should give a list (partial, ranked) of related topics, whether they are alternative views, related issues, or arguments around the topic;

    1. A blank node is a node that is not a URI reference or a literal. In the RDF abstract syntax, a blank node is just a unique node that can be used in one or more RDF statements, but has no intrinsic name. A convention used by some linear representations of an RDF graph to allow several statements to reference the same unidentified resource is to use a blank node identifier, which is a local identifier that can be distinguished from all URIs and literals. When graphs are merged, their blank nodes must be kept distinct if meaning is to be preserved; this may call for re-allocation of blank node identifiers. Note that such blank node identifiers are not part of the RDF abstract syntax, and the representation of triples containing blank nodes is entirely dependent on the particular concrete syntax used.

      re-allocation of blank node identifiers

    1. The inability to match blank nodes increases the delta size (the number of triples that need to be deleted and added in order to transform one RDF graph to another) and does not assist in detecting the changes between subsequent versions of a Knowledge Base. Building a mapping between the blank nodes of two compared Knowledge Bases that minimizes the delta size is NP-Hard in the general case.[6]

      blank nodes increase delta size

    2. In RDF, a blank node (also called bnode) is a node in an RDF graph representing a resource for which a URI or literal is not given.[1] The resource represented by a blank node is also called an anonymous resource. According to the RDF standard a blank node can only be used as subject or object of an RDF triple.

    1. The open-world assumption (OWA) codifies the informal notion that in general no single agent or observer has complete knowledge, and therefore cannot make the closed-world assumption. The OWA limits the kinds of inference and deductions an agent can make to those that follow from statements that are known to the agent to be true. In contrast, the closed world assumption allows an agent to infer, from its lack of knowledge of a statement being true, anything that follows from that statement being false.

      Hope to do some experiments for this next week with Robert

    10. Random identifiers are created for each paragraph. These survive through editing and copying. Pages sharing a paragraph of common origin remain implicitly and bi-directionally linking by id. Search engines then become the external link-store that makes bi-directional links possible.

      in TrailMarks trailmarks are created as high resolution addressable dot at the point of first reference, bidirectionally linked and both the author and the one who makes a reference became aware of each others
