Abstract: A method and an apparatus for searching and presenting electronic information from one or more information sources where the retrieval and presentation of information depends on context representations defined for a user performing the search, other users being similar to the user performing the search, and references to information. The context representation of each object affects/influences all the other objects with which it is in contact during the search process. This ensures a dynamic update of the relations between the objects and their properties.
