Understand what to make by making it.

Exploring creating a new kind of personal website that's based on theories of Digital Gardens and build on Semantic Data. Attempting to build a site that is deeply interconnected, content focused, and open to all kinds of web-native exploration.

This project is heavily based on RDF, via JSON-LD and Turtle. For example, the ontology of this garden can be found at nikolas.ws/context.json, and looks like this:

undefined

The JSON RDF for this page looks like this:

undefined

This gets embedded as a blob of JSON-LD in the <head> of the page, which allows for anyone to discover and use the data provided. It gets more interesting and complicated as we start to bring in texts, resources, and references.

This is a growing project.
