The web expression of this is:
Wiki pages as HashTags, Hashtags as [[WikiPages?]].
The hashtags in twitter that my friend rails against - [[NewOrleans?]] dude, are gifts of the internet age - links. (Brian remember him)
Putting together these links, you end up with a list of what people think about the topic the hashmark represents
- this intentionality is a very good step at creating a synergy of thought around a topic,
- some people say, can’t you just search twitter to get the same thing, and I think no - if we slow the conversation down, this will be much better than relying on a search algorithm. In that instance you get everyone, without filtering out the random noise that search comes with. (The whole [[Yahoo?]] story from Alice)
When you create a link, expressed in the wiki as a [[WikiLink?]] ([[CamelCase?]]) (idea started when at AboutUs)
- This is one of the most important things about a wiki, the ease of intentional interlinking - moving from one idea to another. You have had that experience on [[Wikipedia?]], right?
This is one more way to understand why intentionality is important.
