Subject: reworking welkin

So I'm taking an information visualization class, and I've been doing
some research on classification in social bookmarking systems. And it
struck me that the best thing to do is to put the two together.


Here's the idea: to combine RDF statement based navigation - 'show me
all authors [subject] who have published [predicate] with penguin
[object]' - with multi-dimensional info vis techniques to make welkin
more powerful and adaptable to different contexts and purposes.


I'd like to figure out how much interest there is in this, and what
people want. (of course, since I'm studying HCI, I'll do my gosh darned
best to make sure it is usable). So:


1. What are you people using welkin for? What kind of data?

2. What kinds of questions do you want answered using an info-vis?

3. What problems do you have with welkin as it is now? What are the
things you wish you could do, but can't?


Thanks a ton in advance, and I'm really open to suggestions:
user-centred design and all that :)
