A means for building graph representations of relationships.
In about 2009, while in Austin, I got really into the Semantic Web. After
spending a lot of time trying to figure out how to do something useful with it,
I just let it go. I resolved that I was really either too dumb to figure it out
or it was needlessly abstruse. The state of the research seems to suggest that
the latter was probably the case. Regardless, I didn’t pin my career or
financial stakes to it and, it turns out, that was for the best.
But recently I’ve been reading a lot more and I’m not merely content to catalog
my notes in a simple list or even a JSON data structure. I’d like to be able to
diagram thoughts, concepts, characters, themes, etc. and be able to render a
graph of the imaginary universe (or argument, etc.). I’m keeping track of,
and publishing, my research here.

Ground to a halt. Again.
