Here is the paper I mentioned in class today. It is called "Unifying Strategies for Web Augmentation" and it presents a framework for understanding all the different ways that open hypermedia can be integrated into the World Wide Web. Please take a look at it and send a short summary of the paper (no more than one page) to me via e-mail.

11:50:53 AM

The class schedule has been slightly updated. Next week's intro lecture will be on XML.

I really enjoyed the class yesterday and I hope you did too. I have placed the URLs that I discussed at the end of class in the Course Bibliography (which, like a weblog, is organized in a time-based manner!). I have also placed a link to V. Bush's "As We May Think" in the bibliography. Read this paper and send me a short summary of/reaction to this paper via e-mail before the next class session. Your summary can be brief...but not too brief! As a guideline, if you were to print your message it should fill about 3/4 of a page.
