We've made significant strides toward open access to research, and open access may one day be routine for almost all publicly funded research. In this talk I ask: what comes after open access? In what ways can we use computers and the network to change the way in which knowledge is constructed? I will describe several prototype user interfaces with the potential to radically change how we represent and collectively manipulate knowledge. By looking at these prototypes we can get clues as to what the research medium of the future will look like.
