Abstract:

Our project is studying the process by which groups of individuals work together to build large, complex structures of ideas, and we are developing a distributed hypermedia system to support the process. This description includes a brief overview of the system, but emphasizes three components a hypermedia data management system or graph server, a set of browsers for working with graph objects, and a set of applications for working with data contents of graph nodes. A number of research issues are raised and discussed in context, including composite objects anchored links scaling up for large applications partitioning the hypermedia graph consistency and completeness across subgraphs and an open, extensible architecture for applications.
