1609 - ..
1610 - Summary/Objective
161101 - Follow up ref SDS 19 0000.
161103 - Received ref DRT 1 0001 from Jack Park commenting on the meeting at
161104 - SRI where BrowseUp was demonstrated, per the letter, ref DIP 1 0001,
161105 - to the team on 000122. ref SDS 19 0001
161107 - ..
161108 - Jack says BrowseUp is very innovative and well done. Much of what
161109 - BrowseUp does has been anticipated in papers by Douglas Engelbart, Ted
161110 - Nelson, and Francis Heylighen, among others. Nevertheless, as an
161111 - execution of the many ideas, BrowseUp is really slick. ref DRT 1 I16H
161113 - Jack does not provide an explanation nor sources showing prior work
161114 - on BrowseUp "innovations."

161119 - Proxy Links Considered Previously by DKR Team
161120 - BrowseUp Linking Similar to Transclusion Proposed by Ted Nelson
161122 - Jack explains BrowseUp is close to Transclusion technology described
161123 - by Ted Nelson. ref DRT 1 006M "Transclusion" was reviewed on 000305
161124 - along with Xanadu. ref SDS 4 4725
161126 - [On 010125 Eugene Kim recalled that Lee Iverson proposed a
161127 - Nelson-style transclusion view of links and documents (where
161128 - documents are displayed side by side, with lines showing the
161129 - interconnected links), would be useful. ref SDS 20 KC8H
161131 - ..
161132 - [On 020920 Jack associates transclusion with cut and paste.
161133 - ref SDS 23 0E62
161135 - ..
161136 - Jack says BrowseUp does not actually insert the referenced
161137 - material into the page being displayed. Rather, it gives you the
161138 - equivalent of a menu to select those links you might want to
161139 - browse. ref DRT 1 006M
161141 - ..
161142 - Jack imagines a browser set to work through a proxy server, a tiny
161143 - local server that, itself, does the web connection for the browser.
161145 - [On 010125 Eugene says BrowseUp uses a link server, rather than a
161146 - proxy server. ref SDS 20 ZW3N
161148 - [On 010127 John Deneen encountered difficulty setting up BrowseUp
161149 - on Doug's computer, may try a proxy server. ref SDS 21 567F
161151 - ..
161152 - WBI, IBM's transcoding engine, is one such server. ref DRT 1 007P
161154 - WBI was presented to OHS/DKR team at SRI on 000413. ref SDS 6
161155 - 5148
161157 - ..
161158 - Eric Armstrong reports in a separate letter that the OHS/DKR team
161159 - discussed a design similar to the proxy server scheme Jack attrubutes
161160 - to BrowseUp. Eric says having an intelligent proxy on the client
161161 - opens a lot of doors, and BrowseUp appears to have to taken that
161162 - avenue to the best possible conclusion. ref DRT 2 N25M
161164 - Eric recalls, the group disliked that notion, because we wanted
161165 - people to use a "vanilla browser", without having to do anything
161166 - special to the client. ref DRT 2 RV6J
161168 - No links to original sources are provided to clarify proxy
161169 - server and vanilla browser. On 000824 Eric is not a fan of
161170 - links to the archives. ref SDS 10 7O9I
161172 - ..
161173 - Eric's letter on 000824 discussed a "vanilla" client."
161174 - ref SDS 10 FJ8H
161176 - ..
161177 - Eric asks how much effort is it to install that proxy?
161179 - Is it transparent?
161181 - Does a remote server provide the "proxy", so that you have to
161182 - visit that server and, from there, go to other points on the
161183 - Web? ref DRT 2 JX7H
161185 - ..
161186 - Jack continues -- the browser does not directly interact with the web;
161187 - therefore, the proxy server has the opportunity to look at the URL
161188 - requested, and feed that URL to another web connection, which happens
161189 - to be BrowseUp's link server. The link server can download what it
161190 - knows about the selected URL while the selected URL, itself, is coming
161191 - in on another http connection. Now, two bodies of html information
161192 - are available in the proxy server. Before the server sends that to
161193 - the requesting browser, it can perform whatever computation it likes.
161194 - ref DRT 1 U67I
161196 - ..
161197 - Jack says that BrowseUp [transclusion] appears to add a tiny bit of
161198 - html to the page before being displayed. That added html forms an h
161199 - ref link such that, should you click on it, you now go directly
161200 - (through the proxy server, of course) to some URL inside the link
161201 - server, where another window opens complete with all links others have
161202 - established with the link you just clicked on. ref DRT 1 4P8H
161204 - This sounds like it requires everyone to use a BrowseUp program
161205 - and the same server to create and access links.
161207 - ..
161208 - Is the HTML added to the original file?
161210 - If so, this seems to conflict with Jack's planning on 000623
161211 - to not disturb original work. ref SDS 9 5475
161213 - ..
161214 - If people use different servers, they will not see the same
161215 - links???
161217 - ..
161218 - What controls selection of the server where this stuff is stored,
161219 - and how is that server managed by the user and the BrowseUp
161220 - program?
161222 - ..
161223 - Can it be done locally, so each person creates and maintains their
161224 - own links to other desired locations, but that does not impact
161225 - what other people see?
161227 - ..
161228 - Jack suggests a proxy server could open a tiny dialog window of its
161229 - own for reaching into a browser image and dragging something into the
161230 - new dialog box. ref DRT 1 004M
161232 - That establishes a target.
161234 - Go to another web page and click on something.
161236 - ..
161237 - The proxy server opens a display of linkages you are about to
161238 - make.
161240 - ..
161241 - Both directions are linked, but you can 'uncheck' a box at either
161242 - to break a link.
161244 - ..
161245 - You can annotate the link(s), complete with search words and so
161246 - forth.

321012 - Jack says BrowseUp opens pandora's box to harmful things one could do
321013 - to someone else's work product on the Internet; for instance, someone
321014 - linking your home page heading to, say, a really grotesque gif or jpg.

321034 - Jack suggests considering rules that links ought to be a priviliged

321038 - anything, so long as it is maintained locally, and is not imposed
321039 - on another person's work product.
321041 - ..
321042 - SDS uses this method. It has lots of links and makes lots of
321043 - associations with attribution and context. It does not change
321044 - anyone's original work.
321046 - The issue seems to be where someone adds links that add to an
321047 - orginal work something that directs attention of others
321048 - differently from the intent of the author, discussed on
321049 - 010122. ref SDS 19 GHR2

321053 - Intranets Provide Control for Third Party Links
321054 - Third Party Links Traceable through Logs
321056 - Jack says corporate intranets operate under a web of trust. On
321057 - networked improvement communities (NICs), the opportunity, if not
321058 - requirement, exists to authenticate those who participate. No,
321059 - I'm not talking about private exclusive NICs; anybody can join,
321060 - but they must be authentic, and tracable, because the links can be
321061 - traced, through logs, to individuals, and that's probably the way
