This is the start of a new blog for me. First, if you’re reading on LJ, this blog is now available at http://www.stevecooper.org/?action=rss. If you’re reading it on my website, it’s also on livejournal.
So, what’s the new blog about? Well, I hope to cover some ideas about the way we deal with large amounts of interrelated information, about the way we write and about the way we reason.
As you may know, I’m putting together a computer program for writers. But it’s important to me to figure out how normal people (not computer types like me) go about organising their information, how they use writing as a tool for thinking, and how they integrate, say, their research, their own documents, their private notes, and whatever else they use. Then, my idea is to create a program to help them do all that in such a way that the computer can show a picture of how all these things relate.
Anyway, on with the blog…
