Is the WWW Killing Hypermedia?

Carr, Les, Hall, Wendy and Miles-Board, Timothy (2000) Is the WWW Killing Hypermedia? At Ninth International World Wide Web Conference, Netherlands. 15 - 19 May 2000. , pp. 42-43.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Poster)


As a group that has spent many years applying open hypermedia technologies to the Web, we have long been interested in finding out how in practice people are building Web sites: what anchors they are choosing to link from in their own pages and what pages they are choosing to link to. Since the first use of the terms hypertext and hypermedia by Nelson in the mid-1960's, associative linking has been at the heart of the hypermedia authoring, and is the essence of non-sequential writing - this is the type of linking that we were most keen to investigate.
