[Xmca-l] Re: Live Web Annotation: The Learning Sciences in a New Era of U.S. Nationalism

As a little background

hypothes.is is not a blog. It is a platform for open web annotation.

No matter where a pdf or website lives the layered annotation (which exist
on another server) can be layered on top.

Annotation has been proposed since the original Mosaic browser but just
recently the W3C (the web's kind of standards board) approved open
annotation as a new web standard.

This has the possibility to link up annotations across texts for the first
time in human history. Pretty cool.

<https://via.hypothes.is/http://cognitionandinstruction.com/2017/01/>/ is
just a wrapper that puts a the annotation layer on top of any website or
pdf (unless sites block proxies...meaning they don't allow people access)

You can add any website behind it and see all of the annotations people
have made.
