Boxer is the first example of a "computational medium" for real people -- not just for computer experts. Boxer is based on a literacy model. That is, we want computational media to be useful to everyone, as text is, except we want to extend from a static and linear tradition to a new, dynamic and interactive medium. Students, teachers and materials developers should all be able to use, create, combine and modify computational forms of unprecedented expressiveness and flexibility. Boxer's literacy model is aimed at life-long learning and use: Learn it once; use it forever. Boxer contains a completely integrated set of facilities for the broadest possible range of human intellectual activities. Facilities include:

• Text and hypertext processing
• Dynamic and interactive graphics; Video
• Personal data management, including e-mail and networking
• Programming

As a project, we are dedicated to the proposition that "ordinary folks" deserve the best, most flexible computational tools possible, and that such tools can liberate human intelligence.

Not to be confused with the DOS emulator of the same name.
