Reviving an Opensource Project
Jan 18, 2020

For the last couple of weeks I’ve been attempting to revive an opensource project called Openlumify. The project is an “intelligence amplification platform” — import a bunch of data about “stuff”, then explore connections (graph), proximity (map) and temporality (timeline) in a human-directed investigation from any one data-point, such as starting with an “known POI”, expanding the search to associates (via call records, emails, aliases, sightings, co-ownership, etc), and plotting related events on a timeline and/or map to test a hypotheses, gather evidence or just understand a given situation.
