As the saying goes, “If you are not embarrassed by your first release then you waited too long.” I am now embarrassed to show you what I have been working on.

It’s hard to follow a stream of comments, even when they are threaded. You can miss that one fact that can change your perspective. Here is an idea, have people hang their statement on the previous statements and then show the relationship between the statements. Here is an example video of how we could explore a graph of statements to learn more about a subject. (please excuse the bad audio, choppy editing and frequent typos)

Here is a sample you can play with: I would appreciate any thoughts you have in the comments.
