Laminary is a new type of social network that uses single-column spreadsheet tables as the basis for interaction; it is analogous to a web host for data. Users construct single-column tables of data, and can permission their data however and to whomever they choose.
You can use Laminary as a single table spreadsheet, a collaborative database, content management system, and any thing you can imagine. See Tutorials
Laminary is a powerful tool — for those dilligent in business and life. It is free for basic usage, with paid plans available.
I wanted to be more aware of the things I am responsible for. It started with tracking metrics: body weight, revenue, expenses, times and dates, and so on. But some metrics and information is discontinuous, scatterplot-like, and not ideal for spreadsheet applications. I designed something to enhance my diligence.
Instead of notes, where data gets lost, or spreadsheets, where data must be meticulously organized — I wanted to get a high-level overview of my data quickly. That I might summarize and manipulate data as blocks; organizing the "status" of my data points as blocks; and, I had this rhyme in my head: flocks of blocks. Laminary is an attempt to make data "at-hand" and makes data use and / or manipulation readily employable.
Laminary — A database for blocks (strata).
Strata — A block containing data (layers).
Layer — A data point, within a stratum.
Use data by name, e.g., [corey.body.weight]
Laminary : corey
Strata : body.weight
Layers : 178 (data)
