Object History | Multi-User Collaboration
[hhr 08-aug-2018] Except for our initial experiments with "(Inde)terminus" as part of the ZKM studio residency 2013, little work has continued with respect to the history preserving confluently persistent workspaces and how they could feed back into the compositional process themselves. Obviously, we have to "flatten" the meta-level in some way to make this productive, i.e. produce a form of operational closure regarding the history of objects as possible inputs to the composition. We might want something like an `Expr` for the number of edits, the time stamps of the edits, and so forth.
A somewhat related issue is to open the system for collaborative editing, attaching some form of user-identifier to the transactions, and possibly allowing concurrent editing over a network?
