Analysis for the Overwhelming Success of the Web Compared to Microcosm and Hyper-G Systems [article]

Bryar A. Hassan, Shko M. Qader
2022 arXiv   pre-print
This paper analyses the reasons for which the Web became the first successful hypermedia system by looking and evaluating the architecture of the Web, Hyper-G, and Microcosm systems.  ...  Microcosm, Hyper-G, and the Web were developed and released after 1989. There were strengths and weaknesses associate with each of these hypertext systems.  ...  Dexter. this was a formal reference model for an open hypertext system which was developed between 1988-1990.  ...

The microcosm link service (abstract)

Wendy Hall, Hugh Davis, Adrian Pickering, Gerard Hutchings
1993 Proceedings of the fifth ACM conference on Hypertext - HYPERTEXT '93  
An important feature of Microcosm is the facility to dynamically install filters, particularly linkbases. It is common for a user to have at least two linkbases in the filter chain.  ...  The Microcosm model allows a spectrum of link types.  ...  This has been used to full effect in the integration of Microcosm with Autocad, where the selection of an Autocad object is used as the basis of link retrieval, and with the SPANS GIS system, where the  ...

The microcosm link service and its application to the World Wide Web

L. Carr, W. Hall, H. Davis, R. Hollom
1994 Computer networks and ISDN systems  
An open hypermedia system like Microcosm has an intrinsically different feel from closed hypermedia systems.  ...  A hypermedia link service and an associated protocol is therefore an essential part of any open hypermedia system.  ...

The World Wide Web, Hyper-G and Microcosm: Historical Analysis and Future Integration Directions

Noura NassirAlomar
2015 International Journal of Computer Applications  
However, the history of hypertext systems reveals that there were a competition between the Web and two open hypermedia systems which are Hyper-G and Microcosm.  ...  Currently, the World Wide Web is the backbone which links massive amount of hypertext and hypermedia documents published by communities and individuals working from all parts of the universe.  ...  However, there are powerful features in the viewers that were developed for Hyper-G and Microcosm such as the ability to edit the content presented by Harmony viewers and the dynamic generation of links  ...

The HyperDisco approach to open hypermedia systems

Uffe Kock Wiil, John J. Leggett
1996 Proceedings of the the seventh ACM conference on Hypertext - HYPERTEXT '96  
Computing support for large engineering enterprises provides an example of the need for hypermedia-based collaborative computing systems composed of a large number of distributed heterogeneous tools.  ...  HyperDisco provides an extensible object-oriented hypermedia platform supporting intertool linking, computation, concurrency control, noti cation control, version control, access control, query and search  ...  For example, Microcosm provides a simple integration model providing keyword local and generic and positional speci c links 2 .  ...

Breaking down the barriers: an architecture for developing and delivering resource based learning materials [chapter]

Wendy Hall, Gerard Hutchings, Su White
1995 World Conference on Computers in Education VI  
We suggest an architecture which promotes this approach based on Microcosm, an open hypermedia software platform which has been developed at the University of Southampton.  ...  Such material should be integrated with, rather than isolated from, standard computer applications and should be easily customizable and extensible.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The authors would like to thank all the Microcosm team, the staff of the ILC at Southampton and all the staff and students who have contributed to the ILC Scholar Projects without whom  ...

Toward a Dexter-based model for open hypermedia

Kaj Grønbæk, Randall H. Trigg
1996 Proceedings of the the seventh ACM conference on Hypertext - HYPERTEXT '96  
But it is less clear that Dexter is adequate for systems whose linking is based on embedded references like the World Wide Web (WWW), nor for modelling the dynamic aspects of contemporary hypermedia systems  ...  In addition, our model is better equipped to handle dynamic hypermedia structures. As an example, a model of Microcosm's Generic Link is given which extends that important concept in useful ways.  ...  This section provides an example of mapping a dynamic hypermedia structure, Microcosm's Generic link (Hall, et al., 1993) , to our extended Dexter model.  ...
