Yes it does -- sounds very cool. Thank you very much, that's a nice example.
Would it be possible to explain the Tag-Facet difference in such
concrete terms fairly early in your "fifteen minute Chandler"
presentation? I think it may be a bit too abstract right now, and when
facets appear in slide 10, I felt like I must have missed an important
lecture and don't have a clue what's going on.
One possible way to deal with this in a very simple way is to be more
consistent in terminology. For example, the illustration on slide 11
talks about "grouping labels". This is basically promoting tags/labels
to facets, correct? If it is, how about mentioning facets on that slide?
I think it would really pull together many of the slides.
Another presentation issue: I had a similar lost feeling when I came
across the "bi-level hierarchy" in slide 13 -- it kind of appeared out
of nowhere and disappeared just as fast, leaving me wondering if I'd
just missed something *really* important.
One last thing: I was reading user docs for Piggy Bank today (thanks to
a mention I found in this list's archive), and the flexible
reorganization that you mention at the end of the notes for slides 9-13
("by project>by person") made a lot more sense. But will your audience
know what you mean here? I certainly didn't when I was reading it
I hope these comments are useful,
