Notes: we place here the discussion of the Knowledge Radio idea.
- Social text tools that can be used in blogs
- Writing about dynamic texts – from twitter to blogs
- Writing ahead – preparing tools to track something not yet written
- Collect stuff on “Facebook and Privacy”
What are the tools?
The tools could focus on big questions that users what to answer:
- What’s the difference?
- What’s the big idea?
- What are the trends?
- What’s happening?
What are trying to do?
Different types of texts that general web savy users would like to process
- Process a blog
- Read ahead – set up a way to study stuff being written as in alerts on dynamic texts
- Stuff gathered about a name, brand or idea
Different types of writing tools for information society
- Where are people coming from tool
- Social network analysis tool
Provide writing tools
- Knowledge radio – gathers stuff and bubbles
- Encycle It –
- “Get It” – takes keywords and does some mix of googlizing, or whatever to gather corpus with last modified info
- Get It could use google
- could be given a URL to aggregateAn aggregate is a text formed by sequentially joining together a number of texts from a variety of sources into one large text.

- scrape starting from a URLA URL (Uniform Resource Locator), sometimes called a web address, is used to locate and identify web content.

- blog or news scraper
- Cleaner – cleans up the corpus and discards what you don’t want
- Sliding window view
- Problem of difference – finding things that are different enough
Tools Across the Process
The idea is to create tools and results pages that can be easily “quoted”.
Tool Quoting – ability to get a HTMLHTML, or Hypertext Markup Language, is a language used in web development to make a text readable by web browsers.
HTML is primarily formed of paired elements, such as < body >< /body > or < p >< /p >, that apply some characteristic to the text within it. One pair of elements may be nested inside another like this:
< body >< p >< /p >< /body >
In this case, < body >< /body > marks the beginning and end of the body of the document, while < p >< /p > marks the beginning and end of a paragraph within the body.
Elements may also be modified by attributes and attribute values:
< p class="hangingindent" >
In this case, the paragraph element has the attribute 'class' and the attribute value 'hangingindent'. Attribute/attribute value pairs are frequently used in combination with CSS to apply formatting to the text within the element.
Return to Glossary. form code or an object code that can be dropped into your blog, wiki or durpal
- Provide a reference for a process
- How do we reference a tool as if it had interpretative value – we need to establish good practices
Results Quoting – we want to be able to easily drop a small snapshot of the results into an essay and that would expand out.
- How would one edit results before taking snapshot as in choosing subset of words before getting word count
- How to get results that will print – how to get resolution independent quotes
