Hi guys,

a colleague drew my attention on the following paper. I am not 100%
convinced, and I have to think about it. But it is an interesting
reading, and may give some good ideas!

having one important," Proceedings of the 18th conference on Hypertext
and hypermedia, pp. 123-132, 2007.

Abstract: This paper postulates that for the Semantic Web to grow and
gain input from fields that will surely benefit it, it needs to develop
an analogue that will help people not only understand what it is, but
what the potential opportunities are that are enabled by these new
protocols. The model proposed in the paper takes the way that Web
interaction has been framed as a baseline to inform a similar analogue
for the Semantic Web. While the Web has been represented as a Page +
Links, the paper presents the argument that the Semantic Web can be
conceptualized as a Notebook + Memex. The argument considers how this
model also presents new challenges for fundamental human interaction
with computing, and that hypertext models have much to contribute to
this new understanding for distributed information systems.
