The Fox and the Crow

The Fox and the Crow

Written around the sixth century B.C. presumably by Aesop. Even though we don’t know for sure if Aesop ever existed. The Fox and The Crow is one of Aesop’s fables.

DBpedia says:

The Fox and the Crow is one of Aesop’s Fables, numbered 124 in the Perry Index. There are early Latin and Greek versions and the fable may even have been portrayed on an ancient Greek vase. The story is used as a warning against listening to flattery.

Usually, fables use fictional stories and characters to teach us a moral lesson.

“The Fox and The Crow” teaches us a moral lesson about flattery. In short, when someone is flunky there may be a hidden agenda.

What is Project Xanadu and how it is different from the World Wide Web?

What is Project Xanadu and how it is different from the World Wide Web?

Project Xanadu was the first hypertext project, founded in 1960 by Ted Nelson.

Main differences between Project Xanadu and the World Wide Web

  • Unbreakable, two-way links, while in the World Wide Web links are one-way and often break;
  • Simplified copyright system with special permissions and methods to quote external sources, where all quotations stay connected to their original, while in the World Wide Web copyright is a matter of debate and leads to unsolved questions and issues;
  • Side-by-side comparison between connected documents, version management and incremental publishing that allows changing documents incrementally (without any loss of information and without breaking any link), while in the World Wide Web old pages often get lost and links break.

Administrators of Project Xanadu have declared it an improvement over the World Wide Web, with mission statement:

Today’s popular software simulates paper. The World Wide Web (another imitation of paper) trivializes our original hypertext model with one-way ever-breaking links and no management of version or contents.
