Steven Some of us are always thinking about conceptual models, Jeremy has led this approach and that is why I believe tiddlywiki is as adaptable as it is.
Some lines from the abstract suggest to me what they are looking for is what we already have in tiddlywiki. *Over the past few years, there has been work both in the hypertext and interaction communities that has considered how to represent smaller-than-page-sized amounts of data to deliver more flexible ways to interact with information, and to maintain context of that information. * *Further, these contextually associated pieces of information are themselves actively available to the user: the user can move immediately from their current focus of interest to the new focus of interest, without losing how that new information is related to the previous focus,* I will read further on this abstract but I am not expert in Set or graph-theoretic methods. Reading so far, however, does stimulate my mind to an idea I had previously that a database made up of objects whose attributes are only ever relationships to other objects, would ensure all contextual information is "complete". With a waver that fuzzy relationships should be available, eg; Your may want an address for me, but so far you may only know I am in Australia, the model should accept this less accurate data. To me TiddlyWiki is an ideal playground for investigating these subjects and in fact already satisfies some much dreamed of qualities. For example every database structure or model I know about can be represented in TiddlyWiki.
