NOTES ABOUT THE HOME PAGE. 

"What's past is prologue " create new art. Journey through a WHAT IF scenario.

SUE - very important - in the help and in the WOW section, tell the user they can copy (control C) the source file highlighted text and paste it into the "note" section of the tile.

April 22, 2016 - here are a few other notes - I have: younger generations will understand the the Twitter analogy. (Small bits) I want to say something that Shakespeare discussions are long and no one reads them. (Just like many other subjects, which the general populous won't read through) BUT they will read "nuggets" of information.

This is a rough draft on how I see the homepage and on-boarding to Mosaic Junction. This first picture is a ROUGH draft of what would be the home page "above the fold" notice that the How It Works can be seen so people know to scroll down. There would have to be a "buy now"  or something like that just before the "How It Works" and after all of the slides. Part of the reason why I am putting this idea on a website is to show the slide shows on each main feature. 

Here are other pitch line:

"Did you know"    Follow a “Did you know?” theme – the grids are tid-bits.

Another pitch idea -- Mosaic Junction helps (?) you share, explain and celebrate knowledge. Mosaic Junction is like Twitter on a grid, and because of the grid you can create mosaics - to visually organize your thoughts.

I don't know if this will have a value or not, but there is a program called VideoScribe.CO if I want to whiteboard the intro.

Another pitch line is:  Knowledge Management System - or to use this term for the templates.

Organize (Your?) Creativity
                           Organize (YOUR?) Paper Chase
                                                                        Organize (your?) Decisions

I need another graphic about sharing knowledge with the theme:  "Did you know..."

Mosaic Junction lets you visually organize your notes for better Discovery, Discussion and Decision Making.

 

1.      Create Tile by

a.      Jotting down a quick thought

b.   Or highlight text from a Source File and adding your thoughts.

2.      View Tiles in your “Pile”

3.      Drag and re-arrange Tiles onto a GRID to Discover, Discuss and Decide

WHY do THOUGHT LEADERS and RESEARCHERS want to use this program… For Presentation, Demonstration, Celebration! Thought Leaders are LEADERS because their insights have value and are SHARED. Mosaic Junction is a PLATFORM that allows a Thought Leader to show, explain and celebrate knowledge in an inviting and actionable way.  
Mosaic Junction allows the user to be able to break down complex subjects, connect various sources, update quickly and validate one conclusions. Moreover, the PUBLISH GRID feature shows your visually organized thoughts in an APPROACHABLE fashion that the recipients, both deep followers or casual readers WILL ACTUALLY READ.

And speaking of reading… 
For the PAPER CHASER, what happens to a report after it’s been submitted?
If you HAVE to read the data in the first place, why not break it down, CREATE the NOTES and visually organize the information in the FIRST READ. 

Weeding through past reports or other documents to find key information is not only time consuming, its wasted time.  No need to find the data later, and try to CONNECT LESSONS LEARNED from one source to another…and FROM MONTHS PAST. Instead, make the data make sense right away. By visually connecting lessons learned from one report to another will allow you to discover connections, have discussions and make decisions quicker and with more validity.


Here's how it works:

"BUT WAIT - THERE'S MORE!"

Talk about the tabs, the float, anchor tie back to source


This should be the help file, with pictures.

How It Works
# 1 The Project:
All Grids, Tiles, Source Documents and Outlines tie to a Project.

# 2 Add Source Files
Gather knowledge from various sources. Collect (or capture ?) Place the source files here for annotation and subject grouping. Upload PDFs, Web pages, Images and Copy/Paste

# 3 Create Tiles  Create the Tiles that you use to formulate new ideas or clarify thoughts
Tap to open Source Files to annotate the sources. 
Highlight text anchors to and creates “Tiles.” Tile are listed in the left-hand column.
The Tiles also appear in the “Pile” below. They are now ready to be put on to Grids.

# 4 Create Grids  Visually Organize Your Thoughts for Discovery and Conclusions. (add Template info here)
Create a Grid on a subject matter that when populated with Tiles can build a mosaic of thoughts.
Click-and-Drag Tiles from the Pile to the Grid.
Entire Grids can be copied to create more than one version.
PUT TEMPLATES AND HEADERS HERE OR AS A SEPARATE SECTION - VERY IMPORTANT

# 5 Broadcast Your Thoughts  Let others journey through the knowledge you have presented.
When you wish to share a Grid, click the “Public View” button. The Grid c an be embedded on your website, Facebook page or ____ (??).
Public View is “View Only” and cannot be edited.
Others will NOT see the full source file, only what you have highlighted. 

# 6 Outlines for Reports
Capture thoughts needed for reports.
Click and drag tiles on the outline, which can be placed in a writing program for individual use.
Outlines can be made in both Public and Private formats. 

"But wait, there's more"
Show here the Float, Tabs, and ???

Change Data to Knowledge
Populate the Grid with Tiles pulled from any Source File or create a Tile directly on to the Grid. 
Thoughts based on prior art, or your own invention are captured, manipulated and updated.
A Tile can be automatically placed on a Grid in addition to be placed on the Pile!
Among the many features that can be done, Tiles can be grouped to add an additional layer of information and connection. 

OLD IDEAS ARE BELOW

I think this should be part of the help file, not on the home page.

Outlines can be made in both Public and Private formats. 

I think I want to put this somewhere, but I don't know where:

Or this one. What would be great is if when you clicked on a graphic, it will "zoom" in to the slide show that I have posted above. That would be a lot better than just doing an anchor tag to those slides and a "Go to Top" button to go back to the graphic.
