Well, bakery/2 is getting pretty crowded now that it has appeared on Memepool. Don't want to lose the old info, maybe it's time to start archiving.

Ironically, it's where I found this idea. Looks like fewer than 500. We have well over 50,000 ideas today and I wouldn't call it crowded. [notexactly, Apr 08 2019]


       Don't have to archive it in a hierarchial way...maybe a networked/relational way? Admittedly, categories have to be expanded...how many end up under "Other"? Good example is what the site to the left has got. There's a SiteBrain too.   

       Some things have to be reshuffled, though. The idea called "Josh" is a pretty good example.
quanta, Mar 09 2000

       What's wrong with Josh?
jutta, Mar 09 2000

       Nothing, but it seems to be a mistake - Josh thought the "Name" field meant HIS name, not the name of the idea. I almost made that mistake too.   

       As for the cone trees, well heck, we can bring Vennevar and the memex into this discussion too. I simply suggested SiteBrain because it's useable - and available.
quanta, Mar 09 2000

       Oh, of course! Thanks for explaining the Josh thing.   

       The brain looks cute, but patenting a graph editor in 2000 is just plain silly.   

       When starting out, I've thought about doing something similar to the Java graph applet, but just didn't find a solution that looked good, was easy to interact with, and loaded quickly.
jutta, Mar 09 2000

       would it be possible to archive along the lines of the way mempool do it? Have a few very loose categories and dump everything that has not been updated since a set date to its respective category page. You could maybe even allow items to be linked to a maximum of (say) 3 different categories.
rob, Mar 16 2000

       I agree that categories suck. What about a "rank by annotation"? The number and length of annotations should be somewhat correlated with interest (if not quality!).

       V_e_r_y cool halfbakery archive.
thumbwax, Sep 08 2002

       as I see it, it is just a snapshot. am I wrong?   

       what was so special about April 2001?
po, Sep 08 2002

       I'm not sure I'm comfortable with that archive of my ideas. I prefer they stayed gone.
