Questioning the way we display content

how do we enable depth, context and relationships?

…and they are typically sorted:

  • chronologically: newest items are displayed first
  • through data: most popular, trending, votes
  • algorithmically: the system determines what you see through your consumption patterns and what it wants you to see
  • by curation: humans determine what you see
  • by taxonomy: content is displayed within buckets of categories, like Wikipedia

So what are the issues?

Too much information

It is always about the new

Deep diving is almost impossible

It is difficult to see interdependencies

There is no control

Should we care?

Where are the answers?
