World 3 is about many things but, fundamentally, it is a space about how
to use spaces to communicate. In it you'll find the thinking and
experiments of some of the brightest hypermedia theorists and
practitioners on the Internet. The World Wide Web marries the young
technologies of the Internet and hypermedia - a global network and the
ability to build linked structures of information of many kinds. The
potential of hypermedia is enormous: it is capable of generating
connections which could lead to richer communication than any other
available tool, and there is a powerful synergy between hypermedia and
the Internet. As the medium matures, the emphasis moves from technology
to creativity. Artists, poets, designers, and many others are starting
to explore the possibilities; companies are beginning to use the medium
to project images of themselves, their products and services. Anybody
can jump into the Internet and anyone can use hypermedia. Contributors
to World 3 have one thing in common, whatever their various objectives:
a concern about using the new medium eloquently. Visitors to the space
can share their speculations and explorations.
