One of my commenters, Mark, referred to a WebBrain site that he has been working on called The Climate Web, built using TheBrain. A note of explanation is perhaps in order. You can buy a stand alone license for TheBrain and use it on one computer (Mac or Windows: it is cross platform). But you can also get the “Pro Combo” which gives you not only the desktop application, but also cloud service allowing you to keep your “Brains” in sync across your various computers and access them online. The online versions of your data can be private (default), or public. The Climate Web is public, of course.
Here’s an excerpt from Mark’s comment that provides more detail about the site:
Something you would be interested in is our effort to use the Brain as a knowledge management solution for an entire field, indeed one as complicated as climate change. Our Climate Web Brain is at http://www.theclimateweb.com It’s massive, serves many purposes, and we’re constantly experimenting with how to make the information more accessible to very different audiences. FYI, it contains >10,000 documents and more than 15,000 URLs, but more important is how we’re trying to use the unique capabilities of the Brain to link information together in ways that can help provide access to “actionable knowledge” that is specific to an individual user.
One excellent example of how TheBrain can help you manage your information, even in copious quantities. (Update: Please note Mark’s request for input about The Climate Web in the comments section of this post.)
FYI: Climate change is happening and is caused by man. Just to make my view clear.
