has anyone of you heard of or played around with touchgraphs wikibrowser
this is a great step
forward to intuitive wiki navigation!
i really wonder why this hasn't come up onto the agenda long ago. all it
takes for the current version of tgwikibrowser is a plaintext list of
immediate links from one page (or all the pages in sorted order). this
is accomplished by most wiki implementations by giving the url
to start with, mediawiki doesn't seem to know such a feature. why?? if
we had that kind of "specialpage" and if we could adapt tgwikibrowser so
that it could only read out all the links for one page at a time and
retrieve the links of clicked pages on demand, this would produce no
more load than simple navigation through the textual interface.
what's more, one could even think of a semantic navigation, employing
the categories as "big bubbles" in the wikilink graph and their
corresponding articles as "small bubbles" - effectively giving the user
a kind of is-a ontology navigation tool with categories acting as
classes and articles as a kind of class instance similar to visulization
solutions in common ontology editors like protege. think of a wikipedia
that you can navigate in the same way as offered by such beautiful tools
anyone in favor of such a development? i could definitely contribute
some concrete ideas...
