Welcome

Phase One of development was to use current events as a means of organically mapping out a conceptual landscape.

Newspapers report what happened today. Big As Data will show you where it fits in a context beyond the “related articles”.

Information is all about the order.

With the initial test running from June to early August 2017, the material is heavily political, given what was going on in the news, but otherwise it provided a great proof of concept for a more comprehensive view of the news.

Democracy in Danger?

Is it just me or is there a pattern here?

Following the news in this level of detail over the last few weeks, it sure seems like this administration is trying to systematically undermine key elements of democracy in the United States. There is a clear strategy of neglect being played out to let functioning parts of our government needlessly whither on the vine.

But is the goal small government, or no government?
