A collection of the thoughts of people like Bret Victor, Ted Nelson, Alan Kay and other programming luminaries of our generation.

Representation

The Foundation of the representation will be a 3D cube. There will be three Views. We will be using six markdown files as input for each plane.

Legend

Each plane has its own color theme. Relations should have a special color.

One: 2D - single

The Single view simply displays the data from a markdown file as a "normal" HTML page (can be embedded into SVG). Text color should be white or black, but there should be a transition.

Two: 2D - all planes

Same as "One" but each file is now a seperrated, colored "tile" and you can scroll 2D wise across all planes without interception.

Three : 3D - rotating

Starting from a edge view. Inside the cube is all the data from the markdown files as "word clouds". There need to be a balance between readability of words and the visual size of relations. This view should make better sense of the relations.

Transitions

Transitions between views should be smoothly animated (see bret victor: stop drawing dead fish)

Implementation

  • use JavaScript or ClojureScript to load the data from the mardown files.
  • the relationship informations needs to be put into "data"
  • use SVG and Script to create a pseudo 3D View and to transform between views
