History Log

The global index now contains entries for the following proceedings:

The home page has been changed to reflect a change in Memex and Beyond site development strategy. The first priority for site development is to complete the basic structure, which includes adding 1) abstracts for all the hypertext conference proceedings, 2) key papers that have not been published in the proceedings, 3) links from the archives to the index, 4) links from the index into the archives, 5) See Also-based guided trails, 6) key profiles for leading pioneers such as Doug Engelbart, and 7) completing the basic index.

When that work is complete, work on the graphical, spatial, and semantic navigators will proceed.

The only new addition to the site this week, beyond cosmetic changes to buttons, is the Feedback Interchange page - for the last two weeks I have been deeply immersed in indexing Gosling, Joy, and Steele's "Java Language Specification", which will benefit the site in the long term. I hope to complete the base-level index and spatial navigators within the next two weeks.
