WikiNets is founded on the vision that the way we represent our ideas should match the way we think of them.
“We hope WikiNets will provide new perspectives on topics you know well, and give you a place to start from on topics you want to know well.”
Instead of organising information through hierarchical folder systems or bunches of tags, WikiNets allows its users to organise data in networks, or mindmaps. The platform is collaborative, but customisable.
The relationships in those networks might be strong (such as a direct source for an idea) or weak (such as a secondary source material you intend to read). Either way, Wikinets aims to capture the type of relationship and visualise it for you.
This data can be whatever you want - genes linked by the factors controlling their expression, foods linked by the ways they are paired, mathematical theorems linked by their logical dependencies, files on a computer linked by their relevance to each other.

What's happening with 2013 ideas?
Jisc is working with six of the 21 projects from the 2013 Summer of Student Innovation to develop and explore the possibility of offering them as a shared service for the sector.
This project ran until autumn 2014
