Liquid Information


The Liquid Information Environment is a suite of software for macOS to augment your interactions with your text and your thoughts to write, cite and author documents:


Author Word Processor | Reader PDF Viewer | Liquid Commands







In order to enable a more liquid information environment we have implemented what we call Visual-Meta which enables, among other things, copying of text from a PDF in Reader and pasting it into Author as a full citation which we call Augmented Copy. Visual-Meta is entirely open for any developer.


Future of Text Initiative


The software is part of the 'Future of Text Initiative' which also includes the annual Future of Text Symposium, the book The Future of Text and the Visual-Meta approach.
