Grabbism: more pearls.

Grabbism: rebranding Freidman (click to visit/navigate the tree)

So you know the deal during a debate you made some posts which you think you’d like to refer back to on CiF. What this normally means for me, is logging into CiF clicking on my profile, then the link to display all my comments and scrolling about. Depending on the amount of posts I’ve made in the interim, I may even have to use the search function to find the phrase I’m intending to repost or link to, while opening separate browser windows for any source docs I may have used.

What you can see above is a screen grab of a sub-tree, where I’ve bookmarked each post, dragged them into chronological order and set their names to key phrases contained within, and I’ve also included some background docs. You can click on the image above if you want to navigate the tree in real time.

Mapping the web – pearltrees

As I’m a visual kind of person, I like visual methods of mapping abstract information.  Which is pearltrees – part blog, part social media, part flow chart.

It is made up of “nodes” (the pearls). Each node is fully customisable – descritpions, notes,  custom icons, which are then anchored on a root node (the base of the tree).It sounds more complicated than it actually is, here is me prepping articles about the Rothschilds’ influence on UK politics for example:

My pearltree showing my bookmarks for The Rothschilds influence on UK politics

Mousing over a node will open up a mini view of the page linked to

What's that "Bloody Milton" thingie....? (click to visit/navigate)

Anyone can browse a pearltree, go on have a play – http://pearltrees.com/sirdigbycc – however an account is needed to actually make one.

It’s fully web 2.0, with feeds for twitter, facebook et al, and you can also check for similar content in other users pearl trees, meaning you will often find things that interest you that you may not have normally come across. You can freely copy pearls from other trees, likewise they from yours and you can set up group curated perl trees.

Used in conjunction with browser add-ons (see below) it’s painless, and most importantly your trees are fully exportable. In other words it’s easy to back up and even more essential easy to take your shit and leave if you fall out.

The Nitty Gritty

The following browsers have add ons available for total integration:

google chrome, firefox.

While for IE. Safari or Opera – there’s a  bookmarklet.

Making ripples that last.

Making ripples?

I see a lot of stuff getting posted on CiF, which is a bit like throwing stones in a river, it makes ripples that get carried away by the stream.

The other problem I see is the heavy filtering carried out on the Guardian – just trying to get the journalists reporting on the LibDem conference to comment on the C&C Alpha issue has been an eye opener. That is not the digital version of the same paper I used to buy.

I think it’s time that we of the green area organise ourselves and make our presence felt in CiF – by which I mean resources we can link to, and use to make articles for submission to CiF as content.

I know some of you (looking at you Lightacandle) are uncomfortable creating your own content or blog post so perhaps I have a solution –

You’ve got to see this!

It’s a submission area where we can pool links to information, documents, websites or even just network between ourselves


Just another day….

It was just another day on the CiF graph.......

into 3D objects. So far it’s been quite pleasant, but I have had the tendency to steer towards the insanely optimistic about the time actually required for code writing projects in the past so I refuse to be drawn on when it’ll be finished.

ps Yes, I do realise that out of Gandhi, Thatcher, Friedman, Stalin, Gordon Brown and The Dalai Lama possibly only one of them would be likely to read, never mind comment on the comment cartoon section of the Guardian.
