HyperCard, What may have Been

bobwrit sends us to Wired for a glance back via the writer of HyperCard, bill Atkinson. Quoting: “HyperCard is a programming atmosphere that can create purposes as various as utilities and video games by using linking ‘cards’ organized into ‘stacks.’ instructions are performed through a natural-language scripting language called HyperTalk… The instrument has been phenomenally successful and extremely influential. but Atkinson feels that if simplest he’d realized separate cards and stacks will be linked on totally different people’s machines throughout the internet — as a substitute of cards and stacks on a specific laptop — he would have created the first internet browser.”
