Part 3: Reflections (5 of 9)

No, the problem isn't that we're preoccupied with links, it's that we have lost track of structure! HTML is flat inside pages, and across pages there is no explicit representations of higher order structures. Fortunately there's hope on the horizon with projects like Hyper-G and DynaWeb's attempts to bring SGML to the web. It's ironic - Frank probably never expected the WWW to take up computed links and virtual structures, but leave behind composites!
