<p><font size="6">What is the goal of the Atzeon project?</font></p>

<ul>
  <li><font size="3">The goals of the Atzeon project are complex yet
    practical.&nbsp;</font></li>
  <li><font size="3">The project addresses the essential philosophical problem: <i><b>what
    is a fact</b></i>?</font></li>
  <li><font size="3">How does a fact relate to opinion?</font></li>
  <li><font size="3">How do we design media that can express facts or truth more
    readily?</font></li>
  <li><font size="3">Are there biases inherit in media that are technological in
    nature?</font></li>
</ul>

<p><font size="6">Yes, that's wonderful.&nbsp; Sounds very philosophical and
important.&nbsp; But what does this thing do?</font></p>

<ul>
  <li><font size="3">The first phase of this project will be an attempt to
    achieve a very simple technical function.</font></li>
  <li><font size="3">Web Page Annotation</font>
    <ul>
      <li><font size="3">This phase will develop a tool to allow anyone to
        annotate a web page.&nbsp; These annotations will be available to anyone
        who is browsing the page, and will preferably have both security and
        group features.&nbsp; So in order to achieve this goal, two things need
        to be developed:</font>
        <ul>
          <li><font size="3">The Atzeon server.&nbsp; This server will enable
            users to store and retrieve annotations based on criteria.&nbsp; The
            main candidates for the platform are JBoss/ EJB and the Zope server.</font></li>
          <li><font size="3">The Atzeon Firefox Extension.&nbsp; This will
            enable users to quickly and easily annotate a page as well as view
            all annotations associated with a given page.&nbsp; The means by
            which a page is annotated is fairly complex.&nbsp; I have worked out
            most of the details.&nbsp; Will post in the near future.</font></li>
        </ul>
      </li>
    </ul>
  </li>
</ul>
<p><font size="6">Do you find anything here interesting?</font></p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp; <font size="4"> </font><font size="3">I want you to be a part of
this project.&nbsp; If you are a Zope, EJB, or XUL/Mozilla/Firefox programmer,
please contact me.&nbsp; Also if you are a sociologist, media theorist,
political theorist, who sees the value in the project, I also want you to get
involved.&nbsp; The benefits to helping out</font>:</p>
<ul>
  <li>experience developing open source project, looks good on resume.</li>
  <li>project has clear sociological, philosophical, and political import- could
    be used for Graduate Thesis project, looks good on CV.</li>
  <li>it will be fun, looks good to no one but is provides satisfaction and a
    sense of accomplishment.</li>
