Too much to ask? Probably. Why? As an author linking to this stuff, I’d have to know all this stuff beforehand...or at least know where to find it. That’s a lot of work. No wonder we ended up with sidebars and shallow links to other pages.

The Web is here today...hypertext will have to wait some more.

Jason Kottke wrote this ten years ago. Yes, ten years ago.

Have we moved forward? Not so much.

Ten years in Internet time is like a century out there, and we’re still dealing with plain pages. Maybe the solution will come from third-part providers of glossaries and stuff. Who knows.
