Conceptual Restructuring of My Personal Information Space
While working on a rather fun project to turn riak_pipe into the basis for a prototype of a new video transcoding farm, it struck me that:
So I'm going to start reworking the blog code to do a few different things to address all three of these issues stated above:
Eventually the topology of the site will be 2D but the backend is going to have a load balancer and 2 VMs, which will be running couchdb (for indexed documents), riak (for bucketing builds), onomatic (for application routing), ConnServer (because I want intelligent agents running the site), and either nodejs or jawas2 (which are very similar in concept, just jawas2 will be written in Self). Basically, over the next couple months, I'd like to have my environment working on the iPad, iPhone, & most Android tablets. I'd like it to be accessible anywhere. And I'd like it to be manageable through direct manipulation. I'm probably going to even use the NewScript app's Plan9-esque block creation method for writing new stories. The idea of also being able to draw lines between related stories really appeals to me.
