Hypertext research in KM discipline


While KM is a recent phenomenon aiming to solve significant organizational and epistemic problems, hypertext research has already experimented with many KM objectives and needs. Aside from large breakthrought, smaller contributions have been made as well.

We discussed few applications that started earlier of Hypertext project in KM areas. These applications are:

Annotive collaboration involving commenting and questioning orthers' work, simultaneous multi-user annotations, and contention management was incorporated through InterNote into Intermedia 1989 (Catlin et al., 1989). More structured information linking, sharing, management in a group environment was implemented in the collaborative environment was implemented in the collaborative environment Virtual Notebook System (VNS) for academic clinical research (Shipman III et al. , 199). Likewise NoteCards (Halasz, 1998) supported collaborative idea processing where users in a group could create nodes, add links to nodes created by others, and add annotations to other nodes.

In its ability to process and manage group idea work, this was an early KM system. These system and projects are much closer in spirit to organizational KM that the more abstruse scientific KM.
