iken stores criticalartware’s growing database of information, resources and discourse as a collection of self-connecting nodes that anyone can add to or comment on. The pathways connecting these nodes slowly change based on use; more popular paths grow stronger, while weaker paths fade away. these relationships are also described in a public XML file, making it possible for anyone to develop alternate interfaces to (or interpretations of) liken’s unique and ever-changing content and structure.
