He extremely impressed about Vannevar Bush’s thoughts in his article, “As We May Think”. After he read Vannevar Bush’s article, he started to create the invention what Vannevar thought. This concept based on Vannevar Bush’s article is what we call “Hypertext”, and the developed concept of hypertext is “Xanadu”. Since then, he has been challenging his research of Xanadu.

  1. I love this. I want to know how you did it (please document your process). The cartoon effect of Nelson is fantastic. Am I seeing a bit of Tom Baker’s Dr. Who with the red scarf or is this Pokemon specific reference?

    As for the facts vs. moves question: I prefer facts. Somebody could learn a whole lot about Ted Nelson by reading the great info you/ve provided. Well done.

    • Thank, I spent a lot time to mix those pictures together, especially Mr.Ted’s head.
      I think I used the same way as you put the Chicken Basket on Sir Tim Berners-Lee’s hand ^ ^
