The Garden and the Stream


These are quite nice metaphors for the The blog and wiki combo. From Mike Caulfield's article: The Garden and the Stream: A Technopastoral.

1 the Garden

building out a network of often conflicting information into a web that can generate insights, iterating it, allowing that to grow into something bigger than a single event, a single narrative, or single meaning. – The Garden and the Stream: A Technopastoral

2 the Stream

the Stream replaces topology with serialization. Rather than imagine a timeless world of connection and multiple paths, the Stream presents us with a single, time ordered path with our experience (and only our experience) at the center.
