Learning Machine ITK Build Process ^
RAD = LSI Survey built into directories + ITK glossary. ITK = Interlaced (conceptual, factual) ToolKit that defines what Sustainers need for Re-inhabitation WeltBild. So, within the site structure, above, chunks of meaning and data will be interconnected, elaborated with chunks and links, and validated with sources. The goal, as look and feel below, is to provide the user software app to access LSi and PPW coherently, clearly, and completely.
Key to RAD, LM demands tight, interlaced, responsive design within flat design of short, lively pages written tightly around a single article tag with no extraneous verbiage and copious linkages. Main elements are short interlaced (keyword ITK) articles interconnected by anchors within text flow and supportive glossary. (HTML5 and DW facilitate interlacing.)
The high level of coherence and clarity allows the readerly text to engage and hold the attention of the reader. The LM also cuts down the size of the web site, thus work for me. Relies on revision and extensive testing in different devices. Is ITK a support or top-level?
The detailed but distributed survey of LSi provides the engine of the site, emulating the prototype from SoS for EEE. Population needs page in LSi but may refer to larger site presentation.
Need site tools: TOC, interpretive essays, dashboard, home page (!)
Look and Feel ^
The LSi LM presents a consistent and distinctive look and feel intended to be user-friendly and readerly. The LM core provides an elegant streamlined reference to LSi coded in HTML5. Excess, including images, detract from LM ITK look and feel. The highly focused DOM provides a single article and a supporting aside that integrates the page around coherence, clarity, concision, convergence of media, and credibility. The high ratio of code to text offers a hallmark of the LM.
The LSi web remains a work in progress, so please regard what you see as, in effect, working notes, much like extemporaneous lecture notes that provide background and support to the reader. Indeed, Tim Berners Lee, the visionary who invented the WWW, intended the web to provide shared working notes. So, shoot me an email message with your comments and suggestions.
Document Object Model
Invisible to the reader, but not to the browser or to search engine spiders indexing the page (such as Google and Bing), the model that renders the page needs a consistent structure to reinforce the LM and ITK. This is the Document Object Model (DOM). These components define the DOM of the LSi Project:
Each page within the Laudato Si' Project will provide an aside that discusses the page, its construction, references and notes, and next steps for the development of the ITK within the page.
