 Linkage-Hyptertextuality and Mind Mapping

Ted Nelson Demonstrates Xanadu space

Theodor Holm Nelson (born 1937) is an American sociologist, philosopher, and pioneer of information technology. He coined the term “hypertext” in 1963 and published it in 1965. He also is credited with first use of the words hypermedia, transclusion, virtuality, intertwingularity and teledildonics. The main thrust of his work has been to make computers easily accessible to ordinary people. His motto is: A user interface should be so simple that a beginner in an emergency can understand it within ten seconds. Ted Nelson promotes four maxims: “most people are fools, most authority is malignant, God does not exist, and everything is wrong”. (See chapter II, 3rd paragraph, 3rd and 4th sentence in: “The Curse of Xanadu”)
