Coogan Brennan - The Manhattan Project
I'm a researcher currently at Brown University working on public health and carbon sequestration. I am developing an organization known as The Manhattan Project to develop proper mediums to interpret the massive amounts of decentralized information, specifically in regards to news.
I would really like to talk with other people about this project, get a feeling for where it could go and what we will need to get it there. This means gathering programmers, graphic designers and other high-falutin thinkers to join in on the discussion concerning a proper web browser for the 21st century.
In SoCon 2007, I'd like to develop Junk Monkey, a dynamic web plug-in complimented by wikis and user-generated content. There's a more detailed explanation here along with a movie here (there's a lag in the video, you need to fast-forward at 4:00 to 5:00).
You can see the formal proposal for The Manhattan Project at my blog.
