A recent entry on Simon Willison’s blog, How we made an API for BoingBoing in an evening caught my eye.
It was based on the release of eleven years worth of post from BoingBoing, which you can download at: Eleven years’ worth of Boing Boing posts in one file!
Curious what subjects you would choose first for creating a topic map of this data set?
And having chosen them, how would you manage their identity to make it easier on yourself to incorporate other blog content?
I am mindful of Robert Barta’s approach of no data before its time for incorporation into a topic map.
Would that make a difference in your design of the topic map or only in the infrastructure that supports it?
