(1) Notes from Andrew Hughes:

Andrew created a new concept map as John and Stephen talked about The OrgBook –

The concept map can be found at:

(2) Notes from Stephen Curran:

The session had three goals:

•To learn about Concept Maps - what they are and how they can be used

•To learn how to facilitate building a Concept Map

•To learn about the components of TheOrgBook - described in earlier IIW sessions: Tues 3A, Wed. 4F

We started from a blank canvas at Andrew Hughes provided background information about Concept Maps (see this site for more information), and some guidelines for carrying out the creation process (including, it seems, not to use the word "disambiguate"). The basic parts of a Concept Map are circles representing concepts and lines connecting the circles, representing relationships. A concept map is read by forming sentences using two circles and the line connecting them, ending with the circle pointed to be an arrow. Do not try to form extended sentences involving additional lines and circles.

Andrew has successfully helped the community create a couple of key concept maps using proposed W3C specifications about:

•Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) -

•Verifiable Credentials -

Coming into the session, John and Stephen thought that the map would not be too big - maybe a handful of circles, and some line connections. During the session, we created this map (live and pictured below).
