I’ve had a bit of a fallow period in finding interesting, worthwhile stuff for you guys. I’ve been researching, but came up with a lot of dead-ends.
I have also been pondering the question of how to make the information on the blog and the IL Events more accessible as a reference for IL Fans and casual visitors to the site. The key is that I want to do this without recreating tons of information.
I discovered SpicyNodes and while it is still in early beta, it might do the trick! It is a tool that allows you to create a mind-map-like interface to display information. It is very visual and will appeal to those of us who like to click-click-click. I created a brief demo below. (It doesn’t fit perfectly on the blog, but you can see a larger presentation here.)
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Let me know what you think about spicynodes, but also about the idea of making IL information and presentations more accessible.
