    Marc-Antoine Parent will present the Hyperknowledge protocol. He has studied some neurobiology, mathematics, computational linguistics and systems science. He’s worked on one of the first grammar checkers for French, tree visualization, semantic models for automatic translation, and more recently a collective intelligence platform, IdeaLoom. While working on an earlier version of IdeaLoom, he has developed an interoperability protocol for Collective Intelligence platforms within the Catalyst project.

  • JSON

    ‘JavaScript Object Notation’ (JSON) is an open-standard file format that uses human-readable text to transmit data objects consisting of attribute–value pairsand array data types(or any other serializablevalue). It is a very common data format used for asynchronous browser–server communication, including as a replacement for XMLin some AJAX-style systems. Invented by Douglas Crockford.

  • Personal Hypertext Report #9

    Finally, I’ve managed to get the “change_tracking_text_editor_1” capability working reliable enough for beta testing and prepared a downloadable package: hypertext-systems.org/downloads.php. Java 1.6 or higher is required. A description of the tool/capability can be found in this video. From here, plenty of very interesting options to extend it present themselves, but I find important to point out that in my opinion, tracking the development of a text is fundamental for a hypertext system and serious writing on a computer. Without it, versioning and revision can only be done retrospectively with heuristical diffs as after-the-fact analysis, which can be wrong and lacks information like the order of changes or changes that later…

  • Integration Publishing

    Publishing is an act on integrating.  When sitting on a flight with my mother on our way to Zürich last night, I bought a new pen from Caran D’Ache (or something like that). It’s made from recycled nespresso pods so this has appeal. Since I had left behind my laptop (short trip, just two nights, but still) I had bought a notebook with ‘Journal’ emblazoned on the front. It’s a good pen and I had already been sketching and writing about Author and Liquid Space, so now I wrote the question:   ”…how can I write and have my writing-the intentions of my writings-understood, transmit-able, integrated.  The last few words…
