The Personal Semantic Web

TheBrain has been in development since 1996. I saw an earlier version a few years ago but never got around to setting it up. The system allows one to organize ideas, thoughts, files and other items, linking them all together for easy management. Instead of using folders to create cascading containers of information, the system is more akin to a set of symbolic links, allowing you to create links between different data points in a more natural way. You can assign realworld meaning to your data and get at it in a more useful way. This all of course requires management on the user's part, but the tools available with the system seem powerful enough to scale nicely.
