I am working on the next version of Contextualise, a personal knowledge management application. Knowledge management is a crowded space. My contribution to the plethora of approaches and applications in this space is based on a combination of topic maps, semantic search and language model workflows.

I ask everyone to support the people of Ukraine who are being invaded by Russia. Donate now.

My latest blog post is Three.js Development in 2023.

I contribute to and maintain Contextualise, TopicDB and a couple of other open source projects. I also have several published Python packages on PyPI. Expect many of my projects to be related to knowledge graph-based applications combined with procedural generation together with 2D and 3D visualization systems.

Technologies I enjoy working with, include:

  • Topic maps describing knowledge structures and associating them with information resources
  • Python programming language
  • FastAPI web framework for building APIs
  • Angular web framework
  • Flask web framework
  • Blender 3D creation suite
  • Three.js JavaScript 3D library

Contextualise Experiments

Reveal.js-Based Knowledge Paths

Extending Contextualise to include a reveal.js-based presentation mode to supplement the existing knowledge path feature.

Mixing Art and Code to Build Engaging Web Experiences

Development of web content models, concepts, creation processes and tools: mix art and code to build interactive, engaging web experiences

Story Technologies

Storytelling With Interactive Visualisation of Semantic Events

Developing a combined Angular and Pixi.js-based web application —for storytelling purposes— that allows a user to navigate between a collection of narrative events. Each event has an accompanying 2.5D, isometric environment with participants and items that can be interacted with. Interactions include (but, are not limited to) displaying more information about the selected object and high-lighting a set of objects by tag. Narratives are Contextualise topic maps.
