As your collection of SenseMaking nodes gets bigger and bushier, trying to manage it on a flat screen is a problem.
So put them in a virtual space surrounding you.
Some usage patterns
Each "node" is an icon/object floating in space around you.
- a node (document) is really a collection of nodes (NodeWeb)
Zooming in to a node to read, highlight.
- Paragraph-Addressable connections
- Force-Directed graph as default
- you can easily add connections (kinda like The Brain, but a link involves adding a WikiWord at the bottom of each doc?)
"Group" set of nodes so they "stay close" to each other. (You can make any number of them, and strengthen/weaken their grouping at any moment based on your context.)
