what I am enjoying about this at each iteration is while the map isn’t the territory, BECAUSE _I_ am the territory, I can decide what goes on the map and what doesn’t — choosing from an already existing map (wikipedia) AND THEN obliterating THEIR hierarchy and substituting whatever automatic clustering says about the way the pipes are connected (disregarding the flow direction of the water as it were), then breaking it down every further if I’m not — *I* mind you – choice is key here – if I’m not satisfied at how it looks.
It’s like a dance between three: Wikipedia hierarchy (crowdsource), yEd and its clustering algorithms, and me.
What these categories obscure is that these arose by calculation; and they’re not the entire category but derived from my own interests.
For example: EPISTEMOLOGY is a big area right? Not on my graph.
It basically consists of skepticism.
