1.  What role do people imagine the Xanadu system to play in this publishing.
For those who don't know what I'm talking about, look up Ted Nelson's book
"Computer Lib/Dream Machines" (or maybe another one of his books.)  Apparently
the Xanadu system should be coming out soon (in a recent BYTE article Ted
suggested next year, which I figure means 1992).  Theoretically, this system
would cover the technical details of general hypermedia publication.

2.  Given hypermedia publishing, what do people think of making the raw data
from experiments a part of the publication?
