- "A hypothesis (plural hypotheses) is a proposed explanation for a phenomenon. For a hypothesis to be a scientific hypothesis, the scientific method requires that one can test it."
- "A working hypothesis is a provisionally accepted hypothesis proposed for further research, in a process beginning with an educated guess or thought."

Hypothes.is allows users to annotate webpages or documents in their margins, providing the option to further enrich a snippet with context. Sharing is built in to Hypothes.is, affording added context and active reading across groups.
This enables social tagging, which helps users find related content and build community. Social tagging is a key user behavior to managing a decentralized knowledge graph. This can come in the form of text, likes or emoji reactions.
In an exciting development, the W3C Web Annotation recommends expanding upon their functionality by binding annotations to specific subregions of PDFs, which would enable interoperability beyond the tool alone.

- I currently use logseq for taking notes and storing fragments; and hypothesis for annotating the web and pdfs hosted online. but I use both on desktop only -- on mobile I don't have either note taking or annotations solved. I mostly go to anagora.org/<node> on a mobile browser and write things down in the stoa (shared document) when pressed.
