From Augmentation Media to Meme Media.
Computers as meta media are now evolving from augmentation media vehicles to meme media vehicles. While an augmentation media system provides a seamlessly integrated environment of various tools and documents, meme media system provides further functions to edit and distribute tools and documents. Documents and tools on meme media can easily replicate themselves, recombine themselves, and are naturally selected by their environment, namely the society of their authors and users. Their accumulation in their users' community will form a meme pool, which will bring rapid evolution of documents and tools. The IntelligentPad architecture provides a standard framework called a pad that works as a meme medium. When applied to microworlds, it will bring more flexibility to the environments and more opportunities of creative thinking to the user. (Contains 10 references.) (Author)
