Part 2: Recollections (10 of 12)

Like any self-respecting hypermedia researcher receiving a challenge like that, I ran away. In fact, I left the country. But of course, there is no escape. There on the other side of the ocean in a city called Aarhus, Kaj Grønbæk and his colleagues were running into the same problem. This time we agreed to take it up as a central driving design goal (as were the Microcosm folks at Southampton among others). Kaj's studies of engineering work at Great Belt had shown an overriding need for linking across diverse third-party applications as well as a need for support for multiple platforms.[11] Integration agendas were the order of the day. We chose Dexter as the basis of our framework,[12] but that's another story.
