Speaker from OWL international:
- The critical mass is important: if a hypertext base does not contain enough information bulk, then it is not interesting as a hypertext.
- integration tools are important: linking text and images and data from other applications such as spreadsheets and CAD programs.
- Data bases must be accessible.
- Conversion of existing text should be based on SGML markup.
- the US DoD CALS initiative is important, as well as the EEC integration in 1992.
