How did we go from using computers with punched cards, where you'd have
to wait a day for the results of your calculations - to sitting around
in coffee shops with a laptop ?
Liquid Information is a research project at UCLiC in London in
cooperation with Doug Engelbart in California. We are aiming to make
text more interactive - turning words into hyperwords.
Why? Most electronic communication has focused on the production of
information, not the digestion of information. In order to make
informed decisions in our work, it's not enough to rely on automated
systems - we need to get the right information into our heads.
