Summary

Adar, Eytan, Dontcheva, Mira, Fogarty, James and Weld, Daniel S., "Zoetrope: Interacting with the Ephemeral Web," In Proceedings of the 21st annual ACM symposium on User interface software and technology - UIST '08. New York, New York, USA 2008. ACM, pp. 239-248.

Abstract

The Web is ephemeral. Pages change frequently, and it is nearly impossible to find data or follow a link after the underlying page evolves. We present Zoetrope, a system that enables interaction with the historical Web (pages, links, and embedded data) that would otherwise be lost to time. Using a number of novel interactions, the temporal Web can be manipulated, queried, and analyzed from the context of familar pages. Zoetrope is based on a set of operators for manipulating content streams. We describe these primitives and the associated indexing strategies for handling temporal Web data. They form the basis of Zoetrope and enable our construction of new temporal interactions and visualizations.
