was created by Frode Hegland, a researcher at University College London
Interaction Center, working with Mikhail Seliverstov, a programmer in Russia.
Their goal is to turn every single word of every online text into a hyperword, a
word you can click and then Google, look up in a dictionary, or do any number of
other things with.
So instead of only a
small number of links in a document, every single word becomes a link. Further,
every link can point to more than one place, pulling up all kinds of background
context from the web as a whole.
