The Future of Scholarly Skywriting

Harnad, Stevan, (1999) The Future of Scholarly Skywriting Scammell, A. (ed.) In "i in the Sky: Visions of the information future". Aslib/IMI., pp. 216-218.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Skywriting offers a hybrid possibility, not quite like anything that came before it: much closer to the live interactive tempo of spontaneous on-line speech (and hence on-line thought), yet retaining all the virtues of the written medium (formality, discipline, objectivity, publicity, corrigibility permanence).
