What we're saying: we need a research
subject group to give them these tools, put them to work
with them, study them and improve them. Aha. We'll do
that by making ourselves be the subject group and studying
ourselves and making a tool so that they improve our ability
to develop and study these kinds of systems and to produce,
in the end, this kind of system. It's a struggle doing
it that way, but it pays off.
And then it was really neat, you know.
The feeling out there in our laboratory is people doing
their work. "Their work" meant all our work: our memoranda,
stuff like that, has been done in this environment: structured
hypermedia environment. It's sort of like that. We can
move around and talk much more flexibly than the World
Wide Web can move around the world today.
