Chasing the Read/Write Web
Tim Berners-Lee, the real inventor of the Internet, first conceived the web as a two-way form of communication: if you could read pages on the web, you could write pages on the web. The first browser, known as WordWideWeb, could do both (at least locally). Most browsers since then can only read web pages, and other pieces of software (Frontpage, Dreamweaver, etc) have been used to edit them.
Over the past several years, blogging and wiki’s have become popular because they get just a bit closer to the original vision of the Web: read and write from one place.
BlueInk version 2.0 will take that the rest of the way. In BlueInk v2, the editor can log in “over” the page they’re editing, make changes to that page while viewing it, and log back out. All of this happens from the same URL without a separate back-end interface.
This functionality is a turning point for the Web. We look forward to sharing it with the world soon.
