Adaptive user interfaces, Magic Ink and contextual awareness

Shamefully late, I've come across the Magic Ink essay by Bret Victor[1]. I'm interested in his proposal for an ecosystem by which applications might promote sharing of topic and thus contextual awareness.

I can see this came up on this list back in 2007, but is anyone aware of critiques of this approach; implementations or attempted implementations; or other relevant material I could check out? I'm considering producing a dummy implementation of his proposed ecosystem to test and play with, and I'd like to know what's been done here already since he first wrote his paper.

Thanks in advance
