See "ComMentor" - Shared Web Annotations as a Platform for Third-Party
Value-Added Information Providers: Architecture, Protocols, and Usage
"The idea of a system enabling a multiplicity of independent individuals to
create lightweight value-added "trails" through a document space was
envisaged most prominently by Vannevar Bush as early as 1945 [BUSH]. The
ComMentor system can be thought of as a tool which such "trail blazers" use
to add value to contents, and which other people use to find guidance based
on these human-created super-structures. The overall architecture can be seen
as a platform where value-added providers can provide their services (as a
third player next to content providers and end users)."
