VIDEO: Hypothesis Founder/CEO Dan Whaley Discusses Open Annotation at the University of Utah

A video recording of Dan Whaley’s presentation/demo at the J. Willard Marriott Library (University of Utah) is now available online and embedded below. The video was recorded on September 12, 2017.


Hear how open annotation promises to bring an open, collaborative layer over the web and all scholarly literature, and learn about Hypothesis the non-profit which has jump started this revolution. It promises not just personal, group and public discussion, but a powerful way for humans and automated systems to connect related information with high resolution and precision. With the passage of the W3C Web Annotations standard earlier this year, and the emergence of open source software that implements it, we are rapidly on our way to a much more powerful future.
