Bush Symposium Talk

A talk in which I felt I had ben asked only to say things I hadn't said before. It was part of symposium at MIT arranged by Andy Van Dam in honor of the 50th anniversary of Vannevar Bush's visionary article "As We May Think" in the Atlantic monthly in 1945. Various gurus from the history of hypertext were assembled, to talk and be taped.

Hypertext and our collective destiny

was the title written before the talk, or

The large and the small of it

was a title written afterward.
