Interactive Cognition: Exploring the Potential of Electronic Quote/Commenting
Harnad, Stevan (1995) Interactive Cognition: Exploring the Potential of Electronic Quote/Commenting. In, Gorayska, B. and Mey, J.L. (eds.) UNSPECIFIED Cognitive Technology: In Search of a Humane Interface , Elsevier, 397-414.
In this paper I have suggested that the electornic text-capturing and quote/commenting (Q/C) capability that has emerged in the last two decades has created the possibility of combining the discipline and reflectiveness of writing with the speed and interactiveness of speech in a form of interactive cognition that is sui generis and without precedent. Whether with another interlocutor or with a text, the interaction can now take place at the speed of thought, rather than at the lamentably slow turnaround time that paper communication had dictated. A series of experiments is described that will analyse and quantify the effects of Q/C interaction, both between people and between people and texts. In the interests of developing a corpus in the service of the latter form of interaction, plans for the establishment of a worldwide cognitive science e-print archived modeled on the Los Alamos Physics Preprint archive are also described.
