Beyond Cyberpunk

robo | 01:51 PM

"When we began Beyond Cyberpunk! (BCP), there was no such thing as the World Wide Web. Hypermedia programs like Apple's HyperCard were the only way to inexpensively deliver hypertext with linked sounds, images, and animation... The result was a 5.5 megabyte "connect-the-dots" cyber-manifesto. In 1993, we followed up the first BCP stack with a one-disk update."

Fabulous reference to the past. Ah, hypercard ... It was basically the apotheosis, I think, if Vannevar Bush' "Memex" outlined in the famous July 1945 article "As We May Think."
