Concept models are highly ﬂexible documents that you can use to show
a variety of ideas at play in a given web site. At their simplest, concept
models illustrate how different ideas relate to each other, representing the
building blocks of the idea as nodes and their relationships as lines between
them. Typically the basic ideas are expressed as nouns and the relationships
as verbs, so the connections look like: NOUN-VERB-NOUN. Figure 6.1
shows a very simple one.
