The Visual Wiki: a new metaphor for knowledge access and management Google Tech Talks June 4, 2008 ABSTRACT Successful knowledge management results in a competitive advantage in today's information- and knowledge-rich industries. The elaboration and integration of emerging web-based tools and services has proven suitable for collecting and organizing intellectual property. Due to an increasing information overload, information and knowledge visualization have become an effective method for representing complex bodies of knowledge in an alternative fashion by using visual languages. The focus of this research is the development of a "Visual Wiki", which combines the notion of a textual and a visual representation of knowledge. A Visual Wiki model has been proposed which provides a unified framework to design and discuss different approaches. Three prototypes of Visual Wikis have been implemented and evaluated according to the improvements to knowledge management applications that they facilitate. This is joint work with Christian Hirsch and John Grundy
Canibus - Metaphor Meteors www.canibus- Metaphor Meteors aka Loose With It Born, raised, corns what I eat when I graze Served to me on gold trays Sip grape haze, sunny days, ocean waves Always with a bird on those days In the cantina with a can*** of green Yea, me and my team they think we from Queens Evisu jeans, white Nikes with white wings If the recoil springs, the snake bite stings Bow before what the great light brings Lightning makes the sky look stripe-pinned Cranial capacity 2500 cc, you could rap but you can't see me My emotions echo, I let go into the threshold I grin, my limbs get cold Death to any and all who disrespect lyrical law That's the main motor jaw protocol Here's my software load it all Questions?

What shall I call her...Juliet! Yes, dear Helena! Yes, dear! And Cassandra, and Cleopatra, and Beatrice And also Guenevere What dear? I think she's there. Can you hear me? Barely. I've been speaking of you. To Whom? To them. I told them that if someone were to ask me to describe you, I would be utterly and totally speechless. Except to say perhaps, you are Polaris or the inside of a leaf. Speak a little louder! I love you! Ah ah ah ah aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! If I were in the desert deep in sand, And the sun was burning like a hot pomegranate: Walking through a nightmare in the heat of a summer day, Until my mind was parch-ed! Then you are water... Cool, clear water... A refreshing glass of water! What dear? Water! Ah ah ah aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Love! You are love! Better far than a metaphor Can ever, ever be. Love! You are love! My mystery of love! If the world was like an iceberg, And everything was frozen, And tears turned into icicles in the eye! And snow came pouring And sleet and ice Came stabbing like a knife! Then you are heat! A fire alive with heat! A flame that thaws the iceberg with its heat! Repeat! You are heat! Ah ah ah aaaaaaaaaaa! Love! (I am love!) You are love! (I am love!) Better far than a metaphor Can ...

SFGMC - USS Metaphor: "We Sail the Ocean Blue" In May of 2007, the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus debuted "USS Metaphor," their adaptation of Gilbert & Sullivan's "HMS Pinafore" and a skewering take on the US military's discriminatory "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. Encore presentations took place in February and July of 2008. As this ship of gay sailors prepares to dock in Boston Harbor, Stephen Closeted is conflicted over his feelings for fellow shipmate Ralph Rackstraw. His father, Captain Closeted, eagerly awaits a visit from presidential candidate Secretary Josephine Porter. Mister Buttercup, the ship's vendor, and Aunt Shebe, a member of Josephine's entourage, stand back and watch the hilarity ensue as it quickly becomes apparent that Stephen and Ralph aren't the only members of the crew with a secret to hide...

Similes and Metaphors in Songs This was a project I did in my 9th grade English class. Its purpose was to teach students the definition of similes and metaphors. Showing examples in songs that we hear everyday on the radio is a great way to explain similes.

Idea Framing, Metaphors, and Your Brain - George Lakoff Complete video at: fora.tv UC-Berkeley Linguistics Professor George Lakoff discusses how idea framing and metaphors contribute to shaping the way we think. ----- UC Berkeley Professor George Lakoff discusses concepts from his new book, The Political Mind: Why You Can't Understand 21st-Century American Politics with an 18th-Century Brain. George P. Lakoff is a professor of linguistics (in particular, cognitive linguistics) at the University of California, Berkeley, where he has taught since 1972. Although some of his research involves questions traditionally pursued by linguists, such as the conditions under which a certain linguistic construction is grammatically viable, he is most famous for his ideas about the centrality of metaphor to human thinking, political behavior and society. He is particularly famous for his concept of the "embodied mind" which he has written about in relation to mathematics. In recent years he has applied his work to the realm of politics, and founded a progressive think tank, the Rockridge Institute. Joe Epstein is the former President of The Commonwealth Club's Board of Governors.

Metaphor The shiver kept me from emulating the truly bizarre feeling; but it was close and the tangent of shivering is an interesting one, so the video goes up Additionally, this is a link to an interesting article on seeing the future: Mon Jun 2, 9:50 AM ET Humans can see into the future, says a cognitive scientist. It's nothing like the alleged predictive powers of Nostradamus, but we do get a glimpse of events one-tenth of a second before they occur. And the mechanism behind that can also explain why we are tricked by optical illusions. Researcher Mark Changizi of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York says it starts with a neural lag that most everyone experiences while awake. When light hits your retina, about one-tenth of a second goes by before the brain translates the signal into a visual perception of the world. Scientists already knew about the lag, yet they have debated over exactly how we compensate, with one school of thought proposing our motor system somehow modifies our movements to offset the delay. Changizi now says it's our visual system that has evolved to compensate for neural delays, generating images of what will occur one-tenth of a second into the future. That foresight keeps our view of the world in the present. It gives you enough heads up to catch a fly ball (instead of getting socked in the face) and maneuver smoothly through a crowd. His research on this topic is detailed in the May/June issue of the journal Cognitive Science ...
Joe - Metaphor (Album: Signature 2009) Full Version Joe - Metaphor from his new album SignatureJoe Lewis Thomas (born July 5, 1973), usually credited simply as Joe, is a seven-time Grammy Award-nominated American R&B singer and record producer. Joe's extensive background in gospel music has allowed him to produce his albums as well as sing on them. A native of Georgia, Joe later moved to Opelika, AL; since he was the son of two preachers, he spent much time in church singing, playing guitar, and even directing the choir. Influenced early on by gospel stars like The Winans, Commissioned, and Vanessa Bell Armstrong, Joe grew to love soul legends Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye plus contemporary stars Bobby Brown and Keith Sweat. Now that Joe has a new home with Kedar Entertainment/Universal, where he will release two new albums, he says, "It's incredible that now I get the opportunity to, I don't know, maybe pay R. Kelly back in some sort of side bar kind of thing." He does stress however, that he did not know what was truly going on until after he left Jive six months ago. Joes released his highly anticipated album "Joe Thomas, New Man", independently on September 23, 2008. Another album, titled Signature, is due out on July 7, 2009 in Japan and the US. He's is also working on a record with singer Ayoade Adeyinka
