untitled givealink /FAQ What is GiveALink? GiveALink is a social annotation, organization, recommendation, and navigation system for the Web. It is also a research project by the Networks and Agents Network in the Center for Complex Networks and Systems Research of the Indiana University School of Informatics. The project is funded by National Science Foundation (award IIS-0811994: Social Integration of Semantic Annotation Networks for Web Applications). However any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed on this site do not necessarily reflect the views of the NSF. How is GiveALink different from Delicious? There are several great social tagging and social bookmarking systems and Web sites that provide many useful services such as sharing, tagging, syncing, searching, and recommendation. Why share bookmarks? OK, what can GiveALink do? Some functionality is already available on the GiveALink site. What are you working on next? Great, how can I help? Thank you for asking! Yes! Yes!

TAGora » Tagging Discover social tagging websites | Learn how to use them Social tagging websites Social online tagging is one of the core activities of the so-called Web2.0. Therefore, there are dozens of social tagging websites, and it is virtually impossible to draw a complete list of them. The collection you find here gathers some of the most popular such communities; however, if you find that someone is missing, do not hesitate to go to the contact page and send us a mail to inform and help us to keep this list as up-to-date as possible. Del.icio.us is the world-wide reference site for social bookmarking. Flickr.com allows users to upload and tag your photos, browse others’ ones and join groups of users with similar interests. Last.fm Users of last.fm listen to music online for free. Bibsonomy.org is a collaborative website for collecting, sharing and organizing scientific citations and bookmarks. CiteULike.org like Bibsonomy, allows users to save references to academic literature.

Link analysis algorithms leverage hyperlinks created by authors as semantic endorsements between pages, while social bookmarks provide a way to leverage annotations by information consumers as a source of information about pages. This project explores a novel approach that is a synergy of the two: soliciting annotations from users about the content of pages, in a way that implicitly forms networks of relationships between and among resources and tags. To extrapolate both annotations about content (tags) and semantic relationships (similarity) from single users to the “wisdom of the crowd,” the project investigates an information-theoretic model that extracts semantic assessments from information structures that many users are already maintaining, namely the bookmarks and tags they manage on their browsers or online.

Folksonomies - Cooperative Classification and Communication Through Shared Metadata The Creation of Metadata: Professionals, Content Creators, Users Metadata is often characterized as “data about data.” Metadata is information, often highly structured, about documents, books, articles, photographs, or other items that is designed to support specific functions. These functions are usually to facilitate some organization and access of information. Traditionally metadata is created by dedicated professionals. While professionally created metadata are often considered of high quality, it is costly in terms of time and effort to produce. User created metadata is a third approach, and this paper focuses on grassroots community classification of digital assets. One form of explicit user created metadata was popularized in the late 1990’s with link-‍focused websites called weblogs (Blood 2000). Tagging Content in Del.icio.us and Flickr Del.icio.us ( henceforth referred to as “Delicious”) is a tool to organize web pages. “a social bookmarks manager. Ambiguity

On December 1, 2014, the 1.6 "tree shape" version will be discontinued. Mind iT - Intelligent Bookmarking Visual Browser About the application Visual Browser is a Java application that can visualize the data in RDF scheme. The main principle of the visualization is that: the triple (resource, resource, resource) is represented by two nodes connected by an edge the triple (resource, resource, literal) is represented by a hint (small window appearing on mouse over the subject node) the triple (resource, resource, literal) can be represented by the length of the edge (between resource and resource) if the literal can be converted to a number Visual Browser uses the Jena framework to obtain the data, since the RDF scheme can be saved in different forms (a single XML file or a relational database). The visualization engine is derived from TouchGraph LLC. The graph is animated to create an impression of fixed points (nodes) and elastic connections (edges). The user interface allows the user to expand and hide nodes, switch the view of edges and display hints. Two-level visualization Examples of visualization Citeseer

Now I'm getting closer and closer to these services:
- Raindrop.io (no mindmap, but similar to the new Google bookmarks manager)
- StumbleUpon (for its Serendipity feature)
- Zimilate (by all accounts it's really fast and smooth; no mobile apps - coming soon - but very lightweight webapp)
- Keeb (contextualize everything - likewise the new PT "meaning" to be honest: interesting challenge)
- mohoiomap (it automatize the structuring of a graph through evernote, dropbox and google drive, as you know, but what make me hope in it is the fact that Christian Hrisch - the creator of moho.io aka mohoiomap - is the same researcher that gave birth to services and projects like Thinkbase, Thinkpedia and others... Take a look there Linkurious (really wonderful, even if I can't efford it :-/ and even if the problem about my laziness with demanding tools would remain!! )

Speaking about simplemind, I tried it on my iPad I think...maybe... half an year ago or so, and I ended up to realize that I don't like too much "pure mindmap" tools, because (I admit it) I'm too lazy for them and they require too much business :-))

The only one I seriously used for a while is the Tony Buzan's one called iMindMap. It features also a little ecosystem based on cloud that works very well (though I see simplemind offers something similar, too; but for me "iMindMap Freedom" is more visually effective) by garabaldafafarata Nov 17

ciao!
In givealink it's all a matter of tags, I've tested it last night and I have to say that's a shame it is so slow and antiquated.
One must paly around tags to move from the list mode to the visualization mode: this is a pro and a con at the same time IMHO...
Another problem is about wiki web pages: only the first part of the URL is showed in the visualization mode, i.e. the same for every wiki page !
So one has to manually change the name of such a pearl (^_^) right clicking on it every time.
In short, I'll keep an eye on givealink but for the present I agree with u and it doesn't fit me... by garabaldafafarata Nov 17

So I tried givealink and I can't figure out how to navigate to my links from the visualization page. Without this feature it isn't of much use to me. Have you given simplemind a try. It is very easy to use and lets you build very dense mind maps. To share your mind maps you could save them on the cloud. by s243a Nov 16

Thank you again for your explanations (^_^) especially this one:
«Metalinks are a way of providing multiple sources for the same file. Rather than linking to one URL you like to a file that tells you multiple ways of retrieving the information. This is a way of providing redundancy and hence reducing bit rot. »

I got you!!
So, good luck to you and...keep in touch by garabaldafafarata Nov 10

I'm just doing screenshots in order to remember what I had on PT1.0, in case I lose that data.

Regarding @deuxpoint post, I couldn't find a way to import bookmarks into mind42. Therefore, I presume that it was freemind that @deuxpont used in order to transform his bookmarks into a mind map. Freemind is an offline tool that appears to be open source. It is writen in Java. by s243a Nov 10

technique wouldn't work for my pearltree data because of the way I have it structured. However, his tree will be useful if I want to generate mind maps from directory structures. I often use directory structures (for instance at work) as a way to organize data.

Back to mind42. I agree the GUI for mind42 is a bit chunky but this gives me room to add a bunch of meta data. In my case this meta data is the other sites in which I have similar information stored, which makes my meta-data act like a metalink:

I think I will use mind42 to highlight relationships to key trees within my pearltree. I than might take these mind42 mind maps and link them to gather within givealink. So mind42 is acting as a form of meta organization for my pearltree data and then I will make givealink a form of meta organization for my mind42 data. I'll be going meta-meta.

I'm not trying to duplicate what I have in pearltrees because I hope to eventually be able to work with the rdf file to recover my data.

Ironically, as the clock starts to wind down more things in the PT1.0 interface. I hold out a small glimmer of hope that they will change their mind. However, if I want to take some screen shots I have a very short period of time in which to do this. by s243a Nov 10

You've just opened a new world to me.
I never needed such tools as yet, therefore didn't know them.
Sincerely, thanks.

I'm trying to follow your tips...
As for mind42 ( I, too, read the @deuxpont comment about his complicated, but sure inventive, procedure for exporting PT datas in .html, then making an IE bookmarks import, and so on - I can't remember :-)) - up to stick all of them in mind42) honestly I don't like it too much because of its "graphich rendering"...just for my liking (^_^)

Anyway I do can understand your viewpoint and I appreciate your work on that mindmapping service, but I see the necessity of using PT 1 screenshots, in any case, as a limit to your aim...

Thank you again, I'll feedback you before long.
For your part, let me know what you think of "givealink.org", ciao ;-) by garabaldafafarata Nov 9

The Loss of data due to degration of media, loss of servers, changing of technology/services, is known as bitrot. The blog Streaming Consiouness on freenet has a good article about bitrot:
comment thread for this blog article can be found on sone (a social network plugin for freenet:
also posted recently on sone about my frustration about dataloss due to changes in services provided:
will post my post here once I've had time to edit it. by s243a Nov 9

I will try givealink. However, in the meantime I started using mind42.com to mind map some of the screenshots that I've taken of my pearltree. I just started today. Let me know what you think:
plus that I see about mind42 is that currently, It is allowing to me to link to darknet links (such as freenet). Pearltrees would not let me do this.On each screenshot, node you see two subnodes called SSK, and sone gallary link. Sone is a social network plugin for freenet. It lets you have an image gallery that can be stored in a censorhsip resistant datastore. Items in freenet are stored as keys. SSK is one of the types of keys on freenet.

The reason that I want some of the data stored on p2p is that I don't want my data to be at the whim of some CEO of some net 2.0 service. by s243a Nov 9

Agree with you s243a.
I just need some more time to complete the reorganization of my account, then I'm gonna start experimenting other services...
meanwhile I'll give one last chance to the PT team.
the implementation of an hyperlinks function between collections, combined with the new "meanings" layout, could even be -I would say- admissible...don't you think so? by garabaldafafarata Nov 9

I'm going to have to give this service a try. Without the 1.0 interface it is unlikely that I will use the service long term. However, I'm not sure if I'll migrate quickly or linger for quite a while. by s243a Nov 9

Suitable for the gthub pearltrees v1 project?
May we contact the team of givealink?

Positive note: I see that service is up-to-date

Anyway I think I'll continue use PT 2 as well, cause it's not so bad (even if the v.1 was waaay better!! )

But I (we ?!) need to find also a mindmap shaped bookmarking tool... by garabaldafafarata Nov 7
