The hypertext paradigm has transformed the way we store and transfer knowledge and how we think about information and access it. We access the same sources via multiple devices, ranging from smart watches and smart phones to laptops. Information and transactions become ever more visual, with video increasingly replacing traditional text-based web pages. Particularly, we use interactive hypertext, news feeds and videos for getting things done: planning a trip, managing our finances, interacting with colleagues, friends and family, being productive and creative.
