Hypertext Nelson Zittrain I 226
Hypertext/Ted Nelson/Zittrain: Theodor Nelson, coiner of the word “hypertext,” envisioned “transclusion” —a means not to simply copy text, but also to reference it to its original source. (1) Nelson’s vision was drastic in its simplicity: information would repose primarily at its source, and any quotes to it would simply frame that source. If it were deleted from the original source, it would disappear from its subsequent uses. If it were changed at the source, downstream uses would change with it. This is a strong version of the genealogy idea, since the metadata about an item’s origin would actually be the item itself. ZittrainVsNelson: It is data as service, and insofar as it leaves too much control with the data’s originator, it suffers from many of the drawbacks of software as service ((s) See Software/Zittrain).
Zittrain: For the purposes of privacy, we do not need such a radical reworking of the copy-and-paste culture of the Web. Rather, we need ways for people to signal whether they would like to remain associated with the data they place on the Web, and to be consulted about unusual uses.
