The Lively Kernel is a browser-based environment for authoring active Web content. Being a self-supporting system, it is simple and compact, yet it supports rapid authoring with little need for programming expertise. Most importantly, the entire context of creation is now embedded in the cloud, a shared space in which to find, alter, create and share new content. The paper focuses specifically on a "Parts Bin'' metaphor for organizing Web content and on an incremental scripting metaphor for making active connections between components and for forging new functionality.
