The layout house of knowledge companies developed from seminal works via a collection of prototypical hypermedia structures and matured in open and greatly available web-based structures. the unique techniques of hypermedia platforms at the moment are expressed in several varieties and shapes. the 1st works on hypertext invented the time period itself, laid out the foundational inspiration of organization or hyperlink, and highlighted navigation because the middle paradigm for the long run info platforms. the 1st engineered structures established architectural specifications and versions and fostered the emergence of the conceptual version similar with the knowledge structures and the data layout. The artifacts for interplay, navigation, and seek, grew from the pioneering platforms. Multimedia further a brand new measurement to hypertext, and mutated the time period into hypermedia. the variation of the primitive versions and mechanisms to the distance of continuing media ended in an extra conceptual point and to the reinvention of knowledge layout tools. Hypermedia platforms additionally turned a great area for collaboration and cooperative paintings. info entry and sharing, and workforce paintings have been enabled and empowered via dispensed hypermedia structures. As with many applied sciences, a profitable technical paradigm, in our case the area vast net, targeted the layout suggestions, the architectural offerings and the interplay and navigation kinds. because the overdue nineties, the internet grew to become the traditional framework for hypermedia structures, and built-in lots of the preliminary strategies and strategies. but, different paths are nonetheless open. This lecture maps an easy "genome" of hypermedia platforms, in accordance with an preliminary survey of primitive platforms that confirmed architectural and useful features, or qualities. those are analyzed and consolidated utilizing phylogenetic research instruments, to deduce households of structures and evolution possibilities.

The content material of this monograph stems from the writer's early involvement with the layout of a chain of tv digicam tubes: the orthicon, the picture orthicon and the vidicon. those tubes and their adaptations, have, at various occasions been the "eyes" of the tv approach virtually from its inception in 1939.

Example text

From this architectural decision, the service addressed the issues of open hypertext environments, notably link maintenance, versioning and relation with the presentation layers. The communication between client applications and the link service was ruled by a specific protocol. This protocol required the registration of the application in the service, and, therefore, assumed the existence of a “session” layer. As we will see, the concept of a session-based or stateful protocol, as opposed to a stateless protocol, is a critical decision in the architecture of hypermedia environments that are required to be scalable, and this has clearly had an impact in the design decisions of the World Wide Web developers.

INFORMATION AND STRUCTURED DOCUMENTS Web, an immense hypermedia system that adopted the structured document model as a design principle and is currently the platform for most of the advances in document structuring models and technologies. , 1996; DITA, 2009). Undoubtedly, though, some milestones indelibly paint all of them. The presentation of William Tunnicliffe on the separation of information content of documents from their format at the Canadian Government Printing Office in September 1967 was certainly one of those.

The design of a generic set of hypermedia components could support the integration of this hypermedia functionality without explicit concern for the storage and retrieval mechanisms or the details of the representation/visualization systems (Puttress, J. , 1990). , 1991). 0). com. 6. GROUP AND COLLABORATIVE BEHAVIOR 21 The dissemination of the Web browsers with the integration of the Java engines (or runtime environments) opened the way for a richer integration of active components in hypermedia documents (see also ActiveX controls in the Microsoft broader framework).
