The existing interfaces for graph manipulation all suffer from the same problem: it’s very difficult to quickly enter the nodes and edges. We propose a much faster system, based on the #hashtags to mark the concepts and @mentions to tag the contexts or different graphs.
Since the modern system of knowledge is understood as a multimodal system of navigation endowed with universal orientation, the question of the topos or the site of the local is linked to the question of epistemology and knowledge both in its analytical and synthetic dimensions. It will be argued that the local – like the global – is not a datum given a priori. Instead the determination of the local is a procedural task always threatened by the impotency of the generic perspective and the localist myopia of the particular. We shall argue that the task of localization needs to be understood as an oblique procedure that operates by means of certain ‘perspective operators’ and ‘epistemic mediators’.
In the world of screens we are dealing with fixed states. Sometimes animations. Browsers have a Back button, but it’s still very easy to get lost on the internet. The main problem is that we lose context. And while we lose context we also lose the narrative. So it’s imperative we find a solution to this problem, because not only it will provide a better user experience, but it will also save a lot of time.
An real event within a network is an occurrence that produces the new topology: the edges between the nodes that didn’t exist before, the constellations that transcend the already existing field of possibilities. Using Alain Badiou’s propositions from “Being and Event” as well as a recent study from LIP6 lab in France, we bring together the philosophical and scientific explanations for an event, which has the capacity to change the context.
