Imagine Interactive Visual SharePoint Wikis, and Discussion Boards
So earlier this morning I twittered at how terrific I thought http://debategraph.org/ was. This is one of those things where I expect it to become a normal thing in the future.
As information continues to grow in organizations and across the world it becomes harder and harder to search and more importantly consumer that information. A ways back I talked about Corporate Memory (https://sharepointkb.wordpress.com/2008/07/29/corporate-memory-the-good-the-bad-and-the-ugly/) and how it’s best as an organic thing. Constantly growing, with constantly changing and evolving expectations. This kind of visual wiki (which uses IBIS like methodology and looks similar to a mind map) is a perfect example of how I expect in 4 years many of us will consume information and make business decisions, and maybe even navigate around our intranets.
Think of how useful this kind of visualized relationships can be in a Site Map, for a SharePoint Wiki, for presenting the arguements and replies of a discussion board. It’s a more evolved way of working with these common things and this is only scratching the surface.
Anyways figured I would share some thoughts on it and hope everyone is doing well,
