Connecting Topincs - Using transclusion to connect proxy spaces

Topincs is a software system for agile and distributed knowledge management on top of the common web infrastructure and the Topic Maps Data Model. It segments knowledge into stores and offers users a way to establish a temporary connection between stores through transclusion and merging. This allows them to easily copy topics and statements. Through this mechanism later acts of integration are simplified, because of matching item identifiers. Furthermore transclusion can be used to create permanent connections between stores.
