        D3E: Digital Document Discourse Environment


    2nd November, 2001

    The Digital Document Discourse Environment (D3E) is released today for
    free download, most components open source with others to follow.

    WHAT IS D3E?

    Use D3E to publish web discussion documents. The content (any web
    media) is linked visually and explicitly to a threaded discussion
    space. Bibliographic citations, footnotes and section headings are
    also converted to hyperlinks to assist navigation, especially in
    large documents. Document and discussions are bound together as a
    single artifact.

    Since discussion documents underpin almost all knowledge-intensive
    work, D3E has found numerous applications in its 5 year evolution.
    Some examples are on the site, including journal peer review,
    distance learning, participatory software design, and strategic


    D3E is available in two forms:

       1. Full-D3E:
          Publisher's Toolkit: desktop Java application
          + a Web discussion system: D3E-Phorum or D3E-HyperNews
          (customizations of the open source Phorum and HyperNews systems)

       2. Ubiquitous-D3E:
          A server-side application, with any web browser as client;
          enables you to publish any website in the world for discussion
