Hi,

I'm working on a paper about how to create meaning on the internet. I'm trying to evaluate different
web sites and explain how meaning is transported but as this topic goes somehow far beyond simple
text semantics I'm lacking some theoretical background on hypertext etc.

Does anyone know where and how I could get any publications or info on the net about my subject?
That would be really helpful!

Thanx!
K.

Perhaps looking in to the history of hypertext and hypermedia would be helpful? John Naughton's 'A
brief history of the future' goes in this a little bit. www.briefhistory.com for more info. Also,
maybe looking at the xanadu project might help. (The project is online somewhere, but I can't
remember the URL). Assuming you're an OU student, since you cross-posted in to this group, the T171
course deals with information on the Internet, hypertext and hypermedia. Perhaps you've done this
course, in which case this infor probably isn't that useful. If you want some links that this
course suggests for hypertext & hypermedia, I can probably dig them out for you.

Regards,

"how meaning is transported". This line immediately brings the book "Virus of the Mind" to mind, but
for its application to the world of internet text, your mileage may vary. Still, a necessary read.

Or you could get it from the horse's mouth itself, so to speak, and read Tim Berners-Lee's (inventor
of HTML and the WWW) account, "Weaving the Web."
