Dialog boxes that collect parameters for commands often create ephemeral,
unnatural interruptions of a program's normal execution flow, encouraging the
user to complete the dialog box as quickly as possible in order for the program
to process that command. In this paper we examine the idea of turning the act
of collecting parameters from a user into a first class object called a user
interface continuation. Programs can create user interface continuations by
specifying what information is to be collected from the user and supplying a
callback (i.e., a continuation) to be notified with the collected information.
A partially completed user interface continuation can be saved as a new
command, much as currying and partially evaluating a function with a set of
parameters produces a new function. Furthermore, user interface continuations,
like other continuation-passing paradigms, can be used to allow program
execution to continue uninterrupted while the user determines a command's
parameters at his or her leisure.

Computer-based annotation is increasing in popularity as a mechanism for revising documents and sharing comments over the Internet. One reason behind this surge is that viewpoints, summaries, and notes written by others are often helpful to readers. In particular, these types of annotations can help users locate or recall relevant documents. We believe that this model can be applied to the problem of retrieval on the Semantic Web. In this paper, we propose a generalized annotation environment that supports richer forms of description such as natural language. We discuss how RDF can be used to model annotations and the connections between annotations and the documents they describe. Furthermore, we explore the idea of a question answering interface that allows retrieval based both on the text of the annotations and the annotations associated metadata. Finally, we speculate on how these features could be pervasively integrated into an information management environment, making Semantic Web annotation a first class player in terms of document management and retrieval.
