Andy van Dam and Jim Hendler featured in Scientific American

    Two recent articles in the Scientific American feature the work of Brown CS faculty member Andy van Dam and former graduate student Jim Hendler. The April '01 issue contained, in an article by VR guru Jaron Lanier, a highly laudatory description of Andy's work on tele-immersion. And the May issue featured an article co-authored by Jim Hendler, PhD '86 and now professor at the University of Maryland, called ``The Semantic Web'', with the precis ``A new form of Web content that is meaningful to computers will unleash a revolution of new possibilities''.
