Annotation Systems

Annotation System-s typically allow any reader/user to attach a comment (structured or not) to any web object-node they find.

Systems that make Annotation visible at the original source

In the short-term it seems like a bad idea to have annotations spread through multiple non-integrated systems. On the other hand, maybe it makes sense to have each Virtual Community running its own annotation system. But how many communities are you part of?

  • This seems similar to the issues of having Chandler/OSAF hold your personal notes, while also allow sharing/mixing of content in something like a shared Team Wiki.

Annotea Semantic Web activity

I wonder whether BackLinks creates a similar effect...
