Twenty years ago, Marc Andreesen and Eric Bina built annotationtechnology into the very first Mosaic browser, only to remove it when itbecame obvious that networked storage and retrieval was immature. Buttoday, the availability and promise of networked technologies means thatwe have to not merely refactor, but instead re-imagine, how we “do”science, write journalism, draft laws, and knit together a globalcommunity of informed world citizens. Hypothesis is working to developopen source tools that  encourage people to annotate any web document,either for themselves, or to help build a discussion of the value andcontext of information online.Attendees will learn:* What annotation is, how it works, and who is building applicationswith it.* How annotation is an integral part of the redesign of academic publishing.
