I began exploring graph databases when federated wiki became large enough to be an interesting graph in its own right. Several projects later I became aware of the connection with domain-driven design.

Eric Evans reminded me that there was more to his notion of ubiquitous language and that I was stumbling into it. See Context Map and related patterns.

Emily Hyland encouraged some radical simplification of the programs I had been using. We had a short time working together inspired by Spirit Scientists

Work here is informed by my more detailed work on the enterprise-wiki project El Dorado.

Substantial portions have been contributed to the open source. See About the El Dorado Project
