In a new podcast interview posted on The Scholarly Kitchen weblog, the always interesting and insightful Peter Brantley talks about what he and his colleagues are up to at Hypothes.is. Peter is also a friend of mine as he is to many others in the library community.
Before beginning at Hypothes.is at the beginning of this year, Peter worked at The Internet Archive. Before that he was the Director of the Digital Library Foundation. He blogs on the Publishers Weekly website. More about Peter in this post from January 22, 2013.
The Podcast Interview (Blurb)
Peter Brantley, the director of scholarly communication at the start-up Hypothes.is, talks with host Stewart Wills about the firm’s efforts to build an open annotation layer on the Web, his thoughts on how in-line annotation differs, in both spirit and potential, from the more common practice of online comment streams, and some possible applications in scholarly communication, publishing, and peer review.

More Brantley? No Problem
A video of Peter’s presentation about web annotation from the 2013 Spring Council for Networked Information meeting in San Antonio is embedded below.
Finally, last week a gathering was held in D.C. to discuss annotation as it relates to open data, legal documents, etc. The event was organized by Hypothes.is. Detailed notes are available on the Legal Informatics Blog.
