Executive Summary

Dido is an application and application development environment in a web page. It is a single web page containing rich structured data, an AJAXy interactive visualizer/editor for that data, and a "Metaeditor" for WYSIWYG editing of the visualizer/editor. Historically, users have been limited to the data schemas, visualizations, and interactions offered by a small number of heavyweight applications. In contrast, Dido encourages and enables the end user to edit (Not Code) in his or her web browser a distinct ephemeral interaction "Wrapper" for each data collection that is specifically suited to its intended use.
