Interconnecting Content Types
motto: "comprehensive interconnectability" - interconnecting groups of people and information
federated interconnection across content types, affinity group clusters, platforms, etc. eg, events, conversations, interests of various scopes
Zope/Plone content types
wiki pages and page sections, issue tracking items, mailing list messages, calendar events, news items, regular pages and page sections
Google PIM "content types
- calendar entries and tasks should be organizable
- Why can't appointments and tasks be google docs? And vice versa? What about emails - appointments/tasks and google docs? Google+?
- Why can't we do project planning by interconnecting tasks and appointments (and other docs), creating relationships (sequential and compositional dependencies)? Would allow project management - activity and event sequences and dependencies, decision landmarks, etc.
- Why can't we include references to contacts and contact addresses in calendar appointment location field, and body?
- calendar entries and tasks with contact people and address locations
- documents with everything
- google+ / buzz
- (google notebook and wave items - organizability lacks made them much less useful)
Outline information (allout, etc)
- congruence within outlines - items that properly reside in multiple places
- most everything does, eg:
= me/home address <=> home addresses/me
= project/system-feature/description <=> work-log/describe system-feature/description
... <=> version-log/.../system-feature/description/version ...
- between outlines - congruence in more distant contexts
- different congruence relationships, to provide for:
- items that have different contents in different places, ie instances of a categorical relationship, like "ken/siblings - lisa, susan" vs "lisa/siblings - ken, susan"
- synchronization regimes - lock-step identical, derivative branch, tight/close vs. loose/far, etc
- access privileges
- organizational information manager - collaborative story/plan/tracking development
monetizing based on congruence synchronization traffic metering
