Douglas Englebart's Open HyperDocument System and Ontologies

In a followup to a review on "The Semantic Web" Eugene Eric Kim says: "I first got involved with Doug Engelbart's Open Hyperdocument System (OHS) project in April 2000. For the next six months, a small group of committed volunteers met weekly with Doug to spec out the project and develop strategy...I believe, more than ever, that developing shared ontology needs to be an explicit activity when collaborating in any domain. I'll discuss where or whether Semantic Web technologies fit in, in a later post."

"To paraphrase Doug Engelbart, we're trying to make machines smarter. How about trying to make humans smarter?"
