Welcome Sophie 2.0 Project Developers

Sophie is software for writing and reading rich media documents in a networked environment. The program emerged from the desire to create an easy-to-use application that would allow users to combine text, images, video, and sound quickly and simply, but with precision and sophistication. Sophie’s users are interested in creating robust, elegant, networked texts without having programming knowledge or training in the use of more complex tools such as Flash.

Initially designed and developed under the auspices of the Institute for the Future of the Book, Sophie is currently being significantly revised and improved, thanks to an additional generous grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in the fall of 2008 under the sponsorship of the University of Southern California. The Sophie 2.0 Project is being developed by Astea Solutions AD and additional contributors based on a Java code base contributed to the project by Astea Solutions.

Sophie’s goal is to open up the world of multimedia authoring to a wide range of people, institutions, and publishers. In so doing, Sophie redefines the notion of a book or academic paper to include both rich media and mechanisms for reader feedback and conversation.

Sophie 2.0, with added features and improved stability, will debut on October 15, 2009.
