The University of Auckland recently opened a Hypermedia Unit, with the aim of conducting leading edge research into the field, which involves world-wide interconnecting of computers which already combine text, sound, images and animation.

Hypermedia has the potential to make all recorded knowledge interactively accessible to people wherever they may be, according to the unit's director Dr Hermann Maurer.

"Ways of coping with the coming huge increase in our ability to interact and communicate with each other remain to be worked out," he says. "The creative challenges -- and business opportunities -- are clearly tremendous."
