HyperTextBooks! I totally had this idea in 1993!

I totally had this idea in 1993, no really, and tried to deliver it using Hypercard on my PowerBook. I submitted it as part of my junior MBA (the DMS), which meant that my technophobic boss had to touch a keyboard. This was back in the days when keyboards meant typing, in the dark ages of MSDOS and WeirdPerfect3.5, managers didn’t touch them for fear of catching microsoft or something, or being turned into a girl, or, more likely, HAVING TO DO MY OWN MEMOS.

Not sure about the Moodle link though. And for shame to not mention Ted Nelson, the father of all this, inventor of hypertext which is, of course, what all this is…
