At this point, views in Compendium are either 'map' views, which
graphically show relationships between nodes (see some examples at
http://www.compendiuminstitute.org/tools/skins.htm), or 'list' views, which
are a tabular list of nodes. Some other view types, and nicer graphics
(e.g. curvy lines), are coming. We're also looking into some integration
with TouchGraph for a graphical 'overview' of a Compendium database (and/or
similar tools, but TG would be top of the list).    (04)

One other thing to mention here, that Compendium is optimized around
real-time manipulation of the underlying data and metadata through its GUI
-- taking off from the tradition of QuestMap.    (05)
