00:06:13,530 --> 00:06:14,460
lt's about time you got married,

49
00:06:14,530 --> 00:06:18,530
Before you turn into
a lonesome and bitter, old man.

50
00:06:19,730 --> 00:06:21,860
yeah, can't you just see me?

51
00:06:23,000 --> 00:06:25,000
Rushing home to a hot apartment

52
00:06:25,060 --> 00:06:29,060
To listen to the automatic laundry
and the electric dishwasher

53
00:06:29,130 --> 00:06:33,130
And the garbage disposal
and the nagging wife.

  • Digital material thrives in distribution and reuse

Implications (for archivist, institution, artist):

  • Readiness to let go
  • Openness to receive reworked material

Background: Return to HyperText (1)

Ted Nelson: Everything is deeply intertwingled

Background: URL = API

An Open API (Application programming interface):

  • URL brings existing protocols together
  • You don't need permission to make a link

Backgrond: Welcome Wiki!

C2WelcomeVisitors.png

http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?WelcomeVisitors

  • Wiki means fast (the movement from reading to writing)
  • Making a link is easy (use CamelCase or some extra [[punctuation]])
  • New pages are made by referring to them in the flow of a text
  • Wikis follow the logic of the writer, not the database.

Tagging with links:

 [[Category: Composer]]
 [[Category: People born in in 1972]]

AA Video Wiki is a browser

[[ embed:: http://video.constantvzw.org/vj12/Michael_Moss.ogv ]]

Don't upload, just link:

  • Material is added via a URL
  • Multimedia material can be altered on the fly with filters

ReturnToHypertext.png

Background: The semantic web and the return of the REL

Semantic Web: The good parts:

  • Return to the qualities of HyperText
  • The document is once again central
  • Self-standing, linked documents are source

AA Video Wiki: The web as a graph
