Seedea, scalable creativity
Xye, consultancy for serious creators
abstract visuals as sth with meaning, not sth purely visual thus associate objective to each visual representation possible transformation too, etc... then be able to apply them to any content that is relevant, eventually auto-assign them based on content meta-data and visual meta-data
(even build ontologies and make a real "visual language" with a grammar and possible transition, as discussed in semantic web channel on freenode , cf log)
Basically we can have 2 views of the same data :
Inspiration : Freshapps by ReadWriteWeb : "Instead, "fresh" means popular, which is why the "freshest" apps include what we now consider old standbys like Facebook, Pandora, and Wikipanion. That's not to say that you can't discover apps that are new to you here, but at this time, this doesn't look like the place to discover the absolute latest releases."
To add : should add the previous discussion I had with Emilie before.
|Bubble web interface||Shapeless web interface||Behaviors oriented||Dedicated to children||Soap bubbles||Propositions on perspective (2D vs 3D iso vs 3D)||Co-existence of different visualizations|
Proposition for future interface, visual and streamlined (early March 2009).
As mentioned in "Co-existence of different visualizations" Seedea can take different forms. It could be interesting to split in different communities (E:\Work\pensine\a integrer\entry points.jpg). Here is a possible list of communities (also according to Xye.Targetmarket) that would maximize synergies (cross competencies and domains) but still offer skins that each community could feel used to.
|Community||Entry point||Skin style||Visual resources||Specificity||Possible bridges|
|General?!||http://all.seedea.org||seeds, being a gardener of ideas||...||multi-domain||all other sub-domains|
|Tech||http://tech.seedea.org||GITS/Lain (tachikoma ex.), possible inspiration : UIs||...||nerd/geeks command line interface, black skins, etc...||science|
|Artsy||http://art.seedea.org||sketch in an atelier||ecoles des Beaux Arts||very very very open, no default process, embed into pure:dyne instead of the classical distribution of the SeedeaKey, eventually connect with IN/OUT : un dispositif de création connective - Maurice Benayoun||?|
|Science||http://science.seedea.org||lab bench||?||methodological and strict||?|
|Philo||http://phi.seedea.org||Greece/neuroscience/bubbles||?||ask in ##philosophy on freenode and checks tools like TruthMapping.com||?|
|Business||http://biz.seedea.org||office||virtual whiteboard, rulers, curves, ...||strategical innovation as a value engine||tech|
PS : separation is a difficult point, keeping a general approach has some fundamental advantages (factorizing cross-domain studies and thus real innovation) and some disadvantages (risk of going nowhere by being to idealistic or fuzzy).
Being a very exciting topic, the Virtual assistant module now has it's very own page!
