    Founding Designer, Project Xanadu Bio Imagined world-wide hypertext in the 1960s, and from the 1960s strove for a system of world-wide hypertext– of which the Web (with only jump-links) is a subset.  Parallel pages, visibly connected, were and are the main idea.   Ted Nelson coined many terms in common use (all with articles in Wikipedia)– hypertext, hypermedia, micropayment, transclusion, intertwingularity, dildonics (“teledildonics” came later), enfilade, docuverse, compound document.  [ As well as (not in Wikipedia) structangle, possiplex, hyperthogonal structure, and sworfing (swooping and/or morphing).    For over fifty years, proponent and designer of Project Xanadu– originally an initiative and software for world-wide hypertext, but continuing as an alternative design…

    Hyperknowledge allows to build a federated ecosystem of knowledge work tools. It is based on an event sourcing model of generalized concept graphs, which can model structured data or documents. High-level events are interpreted into micro-events by distributed components, allowing for ad-hoc event model extensibility; components can enrich data reactively; inter-process subscription allows reactive transclusion. Longer Description We will present work in progress on the hyperknowledge protocol. We are developing infrastructure for a federated document and concept graph model, HyperKnowledge. We want to establish a Web of Knowledge. This allows to see how any idea is connected with other ideas in debates, through evidence, citations, influence, consequences, etc. The long-term goal is…

    Collaborama attempts to rethink many aspects of today’s software development by providing collaborative teams a web-based integrated development environment inspired by many Engelbartian principles. Software development projects progress through many phases (e.g. ideation, team formation, prototype development, engineering, software testing, user testing, deployment, analysis) and requires many different skill sets (e.g marketing, product management, design, software engineering, QA). Today’s software development process uses a myriad of tools that are poorly integrated and share very little in common with each other.  Workers in different roles use word processors, bug tracking systems, presentation programs, project management software, testing tools, programming languages, deployment frameworks — and none of these talk to each other…
