The Work of Jonathan Harris. Presentation Innovation. BrowsEarth Intro by Benjamin Brownell on Prezi. Browsearth. Visual Sampler and Trends Talk. BrowsEarth. BrowsEarth is proposed framework for social engagement and currency around common-interest "success stories" and emerging action plans in the ongoing global transition to thrivable multi-cultures.


Prospective EcoSocial Ontology. Basic concept: create adaptable shared reference structures and symbology for cross-platform semantic linking and pattern reinforcement in non-fiction story-form media The Prospective Eco-Social Ontology (PESO) is an approach toward interoperable taxonomic systems for navigation and aggregation of diverse content libraries and topical threads in the realm of "common good" environmental and cultural regeneration work.

Prospective EcoSocial Ontology

The idea sprouted from designs for the BrowsEarth semantic story-scape platform. The present objective is to evolve a composable lexicon of visual tags (icons) which represent near-universal qualities of human value expression, as applicable to the What, How, and Why cognitive dimensions of an ontology of experiential narrative. Each of these dimensions will be mapped as taxonomic structures which attempt to intuitively, conveniently, discreetly, and completely arrange the relevant icons to several levels of nested specificity.

Living Earth Simulator will simulate the entire world. Described as a “knowledge collider,” and now with a pledge of one billion euros from the European Union, the Living Earth Simulator is a new big data and supercomputing project that will attempt to uncover the underlying sociological and psychological laws that underpin human civilization.

In the same way that CERN’s Large Hadron Collider smashes together protons to see what happens, the Living Earth Simulator (LES) will gather knowledge from a Planetary Nervous System (PNS — yes, really) to try to predict societal fluctuations such as political unrest, economic bubbles, disease epidemics, and so on.

This is actually a worthwhile little time waster.

Visual Map Of The Internet And Websites' Connectedness is a website that depicts websites as different sized circles based on the size of their audience, and their relatedness to one another based on their proximity on the map. It has a handy search feature too, so you don't have to go scrolling around to find the site you're looking for. Because otherwise it would be complete shit. Google translation from Russian: Mathematically speaking, the Internet is a two-dimensional map display of links between sites on the Internet.
