      A hypertext system developed by a research group at
     IRIS (Brown University) to support education and research.
     Intermedia was a "shell" over A/UX 1.1, programmed using an
     object-oriented toolkit and standard DBMS functions.  The
     data model and architecture were designed for flexibility and
     Intermedia consisted of several applications sharing an
     event-driven gui.  These included a text editor (InterText),
     graphics editor (InterDraw), picture viewer (InterPix), timeline
     editor (InterVal), 3D model viewer (InterSpect), animation
     editor (InterPlay) and video editor (InterVideo).
