The Learning Communications Laboratory of the Program Systems Institute of the Russian Academy of Science continues to develop the software agent that allows to support the activities of network communities. The members of network communities do not only get access to the information, they also have an opportunity to process data arrays and use them in their messages. Now the messages may be enlarged at the expense of software agents which get additional information from the electronic memory. In 2002 the learning network community including the teams from 14 villages of the Nizhny Novgorod region, is working on the elaboration of the collective hypertext. The idea of the collective hypertext is to have different readings of the same document. The additional information enlarging message context is stored in databases of different villages. For every object there is a certain string containing the following cells: Name; Image; Description; Audio record; Video record. Only the "Object Name" field is required to be filled in. For every village there is a certain value lurked in these words. The value may be selected by the special program filter (or it is possible to look at the file through the filter of village''s views). The stories were created by schoolboy teams as essays on the subject Schoolboy''s day in a Nizhny Novgorod village. The intersection of essays contexts with databases value strings permits to see multidimensional children''s world as a patchwork of diverse links and reminiscences.
