Sophie is an all purpose tool for dealing with media. It will allow users to easily create books that can contain any sort of media on hand - text, images, sounds, videos, animations. Sophie does for media what a physical book does for text and images: with Sophie, authors can create multimedia books. You might think of it as a wrapper for anything digital. With Sophie we are tackling long standing issues as keeping documents and their media accessible for a long time (the 200 year problem) and making electronic books living documents that capture and reflect the readers' interactions and comments (the annotation problem).
