At the same time (and more importantly) there is also recognition of, and proactive response to, changes in the larger computing environment. Design Science has, unlike some providers, demonstrated a consistently clear understanding that mathematical notation is communication, and only one component within a structure that is developing organically on several levels. A simplistic diagram of that structure would depict it as a tension between one dominant content platform, its principle challengers, the complex collectivity of other applications, and continuous evolution of the World Wide Web as a connecting medium.
