Meme Media for the Knowledge Federation Over the Web and Pervasive Computing Environments
Although Web technologies enabled us to publish and to browse intellectual resources, they do not enable people to reedit and redistribute intellectual resources, including not only documents but also tools and services, published in the Web. Meme media technologies were proposed to solve this problem, and to accelerate the evolution of intellectual resources accumulated over the Web. Meme media technologies will make the Web work as a pervasive computing environment, i.e., an open system of computing resources in which users can dynamically select and interoperate some of these computing resources to perform their jobs satisfying their dynamically changing demands. Federation denotes ad hoc definition and/or execution of interoperation among computing resources that are not a priori assumed to interoperate with each other. We define knowledge federation as federation of computing resources published in the form of documents. This paper reviews and reinterprets meme media technologies from a new view point of knowledge federation over the Web and pervasive computing environments. It focuses on the following four aspects of meme media technologies: (1) media architectures for reediting and redistributing intellectual resources, (2) client-side middleware technologies for application frameworks, (3) view integration technologies for the interoperation and graphical integration of legacy applications, and (4) knowledge federation technologies for pervasive computing environments.
