How to Make a Faceted Classification and Put It On the Web :
+ Personality (the something in question, e.g. a person or event in a classification of history, or an animal in a classification of zoology)
+ Matter (what something is made of)
+ Energy (how something changes, is processed, evolves)
+ Space (where something is)
+ Time (when it happens) http://www.miskatonic.org/library/facet-web-howto.html

"....the map itself is open and connectable in all of its dimensions; it is detachable, reversible, suceptible to constant modifications. It can be torn, reversed, adapted to any kind of mounting, reworked by an individual group, or social formations. It can drawn on the wall, conceived of as a work of art, constructed as a political action or as a mediation...A map has multiple entryways, as opposed to tracing, which always comes back *to the same*. The map has to do with performance, whereas tracing always involves an alleged *competence*" - Rafiul Ahmed, Phd.Scholar, Geography, Centre For Study of Regional Development, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi-110067

Great Ideas (excerpts) : http://www.penguin.ca/static/cs/cn/0/microsites/greatideas/excerpts.html

"So we reach for art and music, though we know it will be flawed,
Yet in striving to do better, we are reaching out to God.
We are reaching for perfection, and it's not beyond our scope;
Every act of creation is an act of hope." - Catherine Faber, Acts of Creation

"How dangerous could a map be, if the word (label?) is mightier than the sword, and a picture (graphic?) is worth a thousand words." - R.B.Wild
"No great discovery was ever made without a bold guess." - Sir Isaac Newton
"How often do you express great and colorful gratitude for the clarity you now have on your life and its direction? - The Universe
