Tools and Craft 03: Ted Nelson (
5 points by enkiv2 to historical xanadu 429 days ago | 1 comment

A lot of interviews with Ted are too focused & don't really give you a sense of the man himself (his focus on generalism, his theatricality, & his sense of the historical context). This one does, & I really appreciate it for that. (Asking Ted about Xanadu is not a great way to learn about Xanadu in short order, but it's an excellent way to learn about all sorts of tenuously-related things: talking to him is like going down a wikipedia hole.)

If you find this entertaining, his autobiography ("Possiplex") is more of the same.
