Sembl - A system for visual, dialogic thinking
From the web site: "Sembl is a powerful system for thinking in a divergent, creative, social way. ‘Sembl thinking’ involves:

And if newspapers were to die—to the extent that we can infer from the current landscape—what would that imply for what citizens would know and not know about where they live?"
