The Future Text Project

 

 

The project is a collaboration to make text more visually interactive and to improve digital publishing,

in public dialogue with industry pioneers in order to deliver useful systems to the public

 

 

The work would be continuing the work pioneered by Vannevar Bush, Doug Engelbart and Ted Nelson, as well as more recent from the first dawn of hypertext in the 1970s and 80s.

 

Frequent recorded and publicised dialogue with the pioneers and modern innovators would follow on from the annual Future of Text Symposium series, which have been running annually for 7 years and would form a vital pillar in the development of future text interaction systems: The Annual  Future of Text Symposium

 

Further dialogue will be featured in the Journal.
