collaborative work would look like.

right now, one view of the [collaborative/dynamic] shape of criticalartware can be seen in the nodemap:

"Nodemap is a demo to show how you can use LikML to reinterpret the relationships on liken . In this case, it's a semi-interactive global view of the linkages." - bensyverson (coreDeveloper of criticalartware, creator of liken + developer of Nodemap)
from: savegame 310

Nodemap utilizes our publicly-accessible XML file (which describes the [pathways/relationships] of liken). we determined early in the development of liken that we would find ways to [invite/encourage] [alternate/critical] [interpretations/visualizations] of liken's [pathways/relationships] + thereby of criticalartware itself. these [interpretations/visualizations] could function along any coordinates of the developers' choosing, such as skinning the application or hosting a detourned version of the platform.

when we developed liken, the new substructure of criticalartware, bensyverson took the Wiki concept + built a different approach called Likis. ben improved upon the Wiki concept w/Likis by creating a more automagical system for authoring [links/paths] through the growing network of shared resources that are available [in/on] criticalartware.

"So what is a Liki ? Likis are kind of like wikis; anyone can edit them, and they are highly interlinked with each other. Likis are different than Wiki s in that you don't have to use BumpyCaps to make a link -- if you write ' cybernetics is k-rad' in a Liki , it will automagically link to the cybernetics liki .
Why is that important? Because it means you don't have to consciously make links! You can just write, and the links will appear. "
"Furthermore, although only an editable document in Liken is called a Liki , any normal non-editable comment that you make on a node will be ' likified;' its text will automatically link up to likis." - bensyverson (coreDeveloper of criticalartware, creator of liken + author of likis)
from: savegame 148

"liken stores criticalartware's growing database of information, resources + discourse as a collection of self-connecting nodes that anyone can add to [+/or] comment on. the pathways connecting these nodes slowly change based on use; more popular paths grow stronger, while weaker paths fade away. these relationships are also described in a public XML file, making it possible for anyone to develop alternate [interfaces/interpretations] of liken's unique + ever-changing content + structure.
the paths that liken users follow can be [stored/reviewed/discussed], + affect the structure of the [application/platform] itself, creating a [literal/cybernetic] feedback loop in which less-used paths wither away, well-used paths are strengthened, + entirely new paths grow + crisscross recursively in response to discussion + new resources." -coreDevelopers of criticalartware

we are very excited about being able to release liken, after the past 2 yrs of development + planning. for those empyreans who are [interested/activated] by these [potentialities/concepts/communities/discourses] please feel welcomed to create a login + begin [contributing to/shaping] the shared resources of:
