Annotating The World’s Knowledge
Brantley Delves Into the Intricacies of Annotation
Peter Brantley, Director of Scholarly Communications at the not-for-profit startup Hypothes.is, is lined up to speak at the Publishing Business Conference & Expo on September 23rd. Brantley has previously worked in digital book distribution through the BookServer Project at the Internet Archive and actively supports developers and designers to create new storytelling platforms through the Books in Browsers conference. We’re excited to showcase Peter’s digital publishing expertise at the conference this year. His session, “Annotating the World’s Knowledge,” will delve into the latest applications that streamline annotation technology in academic publishing.
Twenty years ago, Mark Andreesen and Eric Bina built annotation technology into the first Mosaic browser, but found that the network storage and retrieval did not support their new tech. Today the increasing availability of networked technologies has completely altered the capabilities of annotation, which will affect academic publishing, journalism, and how we unite an international community of readers and contributors.
In this session, Peter Brantley will delve into what annotation is, how it works, and what applications have been created utilizing annotation. Additionally, participants will learn how annotation is a catalyst for the complete redesign of academic publishing.
