Goals

  • Standardization across IBG posts
  • Networks of IBG websites and blogs


With the exception of Wikipedia, I believe information on the internet is very disorganized. To address this, we need a standard for displaying text information on a webpage that enables different websites to work together on the same information collection project. I also believe such a standard should have a method for creating small chunks of information. Chunking allows information to exist in a more granular medium which allows greater flexibility when organizing and arranging pieces of information in a directory.

The curators who create directories (or search engines) of IBG posts would be responsible for helping readers find posts and essentially create the network.
