The Stillman Projects provide systems for automated, individual and/or collaborative information filtering. These systems aim to aid in the increasingly difficult task of navigating in large hypertextual spaces like the WWW as well as generate alternate contexts for the navigated information. The projects' conceptual platform could be found within the discourse of the emergence of intelligent reactive info-scapes. The application of the projects adds an innovative and informative feature to web sites of all kinds.
