WORLDWIDE WEB 1974, First computer implementation Ted Nelson, Xanadu hypertext project “Now the idea is this: To give you a screen in your home from which you can see into the world’s hypertext libraries. (The fact that the world doesn’t have any hypertext libraries – yet – is a minor point) To give you a screen system that will offer high-performance computer graphics and text services at a price anyone can afford. … To make you part of a new electronic literature and art, where you can get all your questions answered and nobody will put you down.”

  16. 16. WORLDWIDE WEB “The Web arose as the answer to an open challenge, through the swirling together of influences, ideas, and realizations from many sides, until, by the wondrous offices of the human mind, a new concept jelled.
