    8. broadest possible array of use cases and needs inform the standards process

    11. We assume that there is a need for annotation that the web does not presently satisfy.

      Mention sites like Medium and others who are moving to an annotation-based UI to improve their reader experience. This is concrete evidence for the need for annotation.

    12. .

    13. The vast majority of the web is dark to interaction of any kind. When it does exist, usually it is in the form of the comment widget which restricts conversations to general discussions of the whole article, making targeted discussion of specific assertions or facts more difficult. As a consequence, traditional commenting leads to sprawling, lower quality discussions which are difficult to manage and awkward to navigate.

      Mention ability to follow a user or community contribution across multiple sites, not just isolated articles?

    14. While the idea of a generalized conversation layer over the web has captured the imaginations of many for decades, we have tested this assumption ourselves in more focused ways.

      Annotations are at the Web’s core.

    1. Great feature set for annotation organization and text mining, with videos

    1. Need a place to post websites w/ descriptions and tags

      Interesting crowdsourced thread on annotation-like services.

    1. The ReadSocial people are the same ones who brought us BookGlutton. They have branched out into new areas. Publishers should be looking at Readsocial carefully. It provides a relatively painless way to create a social network around their books, magazines, articles, etc. The network can flow across different reading systems and the virtual groups can connect down to the paragraph level. I think it would be extremely useful for such things as travel books and college guides.

      Might be of interest for API for social, annotations, or digipub in general.

      Interesting analysis of Node.js's possible strengths.

    1. We use @Caolan's excellent Async library. Our code is not 5 level deep nested callbacks. We currently have about 45,000 lines of Javascript in our main repository. In this code base, we have used the async library as our only flow control library. Our current use of the library in our code base: async.waterfall: 74 async.forEach: 55 async.forEachSeries: 21 async.series: 8 async.parallel: 4 async.queue: 3 I highly suggest, that if you are unsure about Node.js and are going to do an experiment project, make sure you use Async, Step, or one of the other flow control modules for your experiment. It will help you better understand how most larger Node.js applications are built.

      Considerations for building on Node.js

    2. We decided to make a spreadsheet of the possible environments we would consider using for our next generation product. The inputs were: Community Velocity Correctness (aka, static typing-like things) Debuggability/Tooling Downtime/Compile Time Libraries (Standard/External) Testability Team Experience Performance Production We setup the spreadsheet so we could change the weight of each category. This let us play with our feelings, what if we only cared about developer velocity? What if we only cared about testability?

      Good considerations for selecting a platform.

    1. Oliver Marks

      Talk to Marks about DCS and annotation.

    1. "Reframeit can help curb the power of misinformation to distort our national conversation about issues that matter.

    5. The matrix of 'channels' you share comments with can be deep: the same page could have several sets of your notes appended to it for specific groups of viewers with specific interests.

      Good use for "groups"

    6. Comments can be framed as a General Comment, Question, Counter or Supporting Argument, Suggestion, Explanation, Answer, Cause or Effect from a pull down menu above the field where you type your comments.

      Common categories for tags

    7. intriguing from a workflow perspective is the ability to add notes to internal web applications, so notes can be appended to specific products for example to provide everything from training to departmental feedback

      use case

    8. Providing context to specific content is key to so much of web communication and the holy grail of social media marketing practitioners.

      Use case

      In W3C parlance, this is probably the "shortname", like w3.org/TR/SVG/.

      This might be enabled by the planned "groups" feature, along with common hashtags for that group added through the group admin interface.
