The Web as a Global Market
How an intelligent Website that “sells” cognitive objects looks like


Websites offer their users a collection of virtual objects under the form of a set of hyperlinks, Catalogs and Maps. The “front end” of any of them are the bi dimensionally users’ computer screens. Then the only way to represent a real front end is presenting one page at a time. A common marketing strategy consists of dividing the screen space in regions, preserving the central region to show the different “rooms” one-at-a-time. The frame could remain the same or changing from “virtual shopping” floor to floor.

Intelligent Websites are built with “pseudo alive” objects, each one having something like a “virtual chip” that enables their administrators to precisely know what happened with them along their life cycle. It’s like having all the shopping articles with smart built in chips telling what happened with them from the moment they were assigned to the store to be sold until the moment they were sold, including all kind of minor instances like for instance: tried on, pre selected by a customer to see it, kept in a shopping cart, lost, rejected after being sold, offere as a bargain, etc.




We depict here how an Intelligent Website looks like, adapted to host a HKM, Human Knowledge Map. In fact all happens as if everything is shown bi dimensionally “one-at-a-time” via the central region. The Menu provides the different “Attractions”. The Search Box resembles the Shopping Customer Desktop and the Knowledge Map resembles a Catalog of cognitive documents “mapped” in a bi dimension matrix
