DeepaMehta is a platform for collaboration and knowledge management. The goal of DeepaMehta is to provide knowledge workers of all kind a cognitive adequate work environment, right after booting.

The vision of DeepaMehta is a Post-Desktop Metaphor user interface that abolishes applications, windows, files, and folders in favor of stable personal views of contextual content. We love the idea of providing the situated user a cognitive home.

DeepaMehta is a Think Tool.

We are inspired by Vannevar Bush, Douglas Engelbart, Ted Nelson, J.C.R. Licklider, Robert Taylor, David Canfield Smith, Alan Kay, Seymour Papert, Lucy Suchman, Terry Winograd, and Joseph Weizenbaum.

Technically, DeepaMehta is a Java/OSGi based Inversion-of-Control container for running plugins and a HTML5/JavaScript webclient which are communicating via a REST API. You as a plugin developer can provide data models, application services, or presentation logic. Or you can develop a complete new client interface in the language of your choice.
