Hypothes.is: Annotating the World’s Knowledge

Peter Brantley
Director Scholarly Communications
Hypothes.is

 

For the first several decades of the Web’s existence, human communication and interaction has been re-engineered for new online forms. On the precipice of understanding how to present human knowledge using distributed networked technologies, open standards and tools are being drafted that permit commentary and discourse across different kinds of media and representations, whether text, image, audio, or PDF. Leveraging new identity systems, Web standards, and distributed storage, Vannevar Bush’s future can be glimpsed. Hypothes.is, a not-for-profit start-up, is building a reference implementation for open annotation, and will demonstrate its new tools.

  1. [...] Hypothes.is, a not-for-profit start-up, is building a reference implementation for open annotation that will be a distributed, open-source platform for the collaborative evaluation of information based on a new draft standard for annotating digital documents. It is currently being developed by the Open Annotation Collaboration, a consortium that includes the Internet Archive, NISO (National Information Standards Organization), O’Reilly Books, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and a number of academic institutions. This presentation includes discussion of the system under development, as well as a demonstration of some of its new tools, presented by Hypothes.is scholarly communications director Peter Brantley.
