    Catching a Ride on the iA-Train

    I got this off the link to Courtney's post. I think it could have some implications to how Team Jindal tries to disseminate and manage information on the Internet. It's called a Web Train Map from the website iA, or information Architects.


    Ithink it's pretty fascinating that a group has spent this kind of effort
    tracking down the interrelational properties of websites. I'm thinking
    we could use it to help spread useful memes and possibly to interrupt
    the flow of damaging ones. For instance, if we have a new idea for
    Bobby's ( I won't call him BJ anymore) social agenda, we get our
    bloggers to start posting strategic comments on the social news line.
    Someone makes a disparaging review of our candidate on the news line,
    and we know exactly where to head to get "upstream" and "downstream" of
    this information so that we can attempt to "vaccinate" the Internet of
    these viral messages. But we can only do this with a highly engaged and
    dedicated blogging team. It would definitely be worth having a
    conversation with the iA group to see what kind of support or
    consultation they can offer us.
