A Cosmology for a Different Computer Universe: Data Model, Mechanisms, Virtual Machine and Visualization Infrastructure

“The computing world is based on one principal system of conventions — the simulation of hierarchy and the simulation of paper. The article introduces an entirely different system of conventions for data and computing.¬†zzstructure is a generalized representation for all data and a new set of mechanisms for all computing. The article provides a reference description of zzstructure and what we hope to build on it. (…) Simplicity is not cheap, and simple design is very difficult.” (Theodor Holm Nelson – Journal of Digital Information: 5.1)
