Heather Staines leads you on adventures across the web to show how she created over 100,000 annotations with Hypothesis.
The web of linked resources produces a steady flow of emergent capabilities. The web of linked segments increases that flow.
Annotation alone is a powerful way to remix the web. When you add Twitter into the mix, possibilities multiply.
Recently we decided to keep better track of tweets, blog posts, and other web resources that mention and discuss our product. There are two common ways to do that: send links to a list maintainer, or co-edit a shared list of links. And here's a third way, less common but arguably more powerful and flexible: tag the web resources in situ.
A new wildcard URL search API makes it possible to monitor entire websites for annotation activity. Here we show how you can use that capability to send notifications to Slack.

Chrome overstates what Hypothes.is needs permission to do -- we don't use your camera, for example! We ask for these permissions because the extension needs them in order to work [...]

(And then in an annotation layer on that annotation layer!) One of the questions that came up was about @mentions: Until @mentions are an in-app feature [...]
A few weeks ago we published a frequently-asked questions page at https://hypothes.is/faq. In the time-honored tradition of the internet FAQ, we want ours to be a living document that evolves as we add features and interact with users. That tradition is often more honored in the breach than the observance, but we have an ace [...]

You'll see those annotations when you return to the page, and so will other Hypothesis users." As a general proposition that seems to make sense to almost [...]
