The goal is to help developers of annotation tools create their applications without having to reinvent the wheel, while applying a standards-driven approach based on the W3C’s Web Annotation data model, in order to facilitate an ecosystem of interoperable annotation tools — ideally making annotations an integral part of the web.
We are currently working on a basic set of modules for core tasks such as anchoring annotations to their targets. We welcome developers and community members interested in the future of annotation. Please reach out on our mailing list or join us on one of our weekly calls! We'd love to have your input and help.
Human interactions happen in the IRC chat room and via the mailing list.
