The on-line semi-intellectual journal of an oddball generalist.

Among other things I mean to discuss from time to time is progress on the knowledge base. Some time back, I decided to focus heaviily on recent history, as recent as the past month, so that i would be able to discuss current events.  I  became somewhat frustrated because the knoweldge base  was all skeleton and no content,   When I began including historical events (From Wikipeda), I found that these required substantial digestion, and began a program of including nations in the knowledge base. The whole thing is still horribly incomplete, but I have returned to the " bridge" Idea, and begun expanding history, its most recent subdivision modern history, the 20th century, the early 21st century, and so on to the most recent month. The pages for individual months of the last four years are the largest and badly need to be digested and broken down. In the process, material will begin to flow to other parts of the knowledge base.


I also began something I have been procrastinating for some time, which is to look at the usage records for the SKB and determine which areas are most frequently viewed, which should help determine what would be most helpful to visitors.  I am finding find that the areas where I have put the most time in development are not the ones that are most visited, which will probably change what areas i work on  from now on.
