Presented at Videotex International October, 1985 (Amsterdam)
"Why put a geeky acronym like NAPLPS into the title of this talk?" Consider the venue.
It was 1985. Graphics on a low-cost personal computer was still new - a cutting edge concept - but expensive, non-standard, and difficult to deliver over the networks of that time - most of them still operating at less than 9600 Baud ( i.e. really, really slow).
And this talk was presented in Europe. There were already 3 major competing national browser standards in the marketplace: Prestel (Britain), Teletel (France) and Bildschirmtext (Germany). Though technically superior in many ways, the US/Canada NAPLPS standard was considered an unwelcome interloper.
My agenda here was to demonstrate the advantages and look to the future.
