tldr – Interfaces for Large-Scale Online Discussion Spaces : I’m very impressed with this. I assumed there was really no new ground to break in the area of discussion forums, but this guy has really put something interesting together, which helps users navigate large-scale, branching discussions.
tldr is an application for navigating through large-scale online discussions. The application visualizes structures and patterns within ongoing conversations to let the user browse to content of most interest. In addition to visual overviews, it also incorporates features such as thread summarization, non-linear navigation, multi-dimensional filtering, and various other features that improve the experience of participating in large-discussions.
He’s apparently going to release it to Reddit soon. Really good stuff.
