WELCOME TO XANADU® HYPERTEXT
Theodor Holm Nelson, founding designer, Project Xanadu
We offer a different kind of document.
This is just a brief note, intended to show different kinds of connections.
We believe that links should be visibly connected.
Here's a xanalink to a historical piece--
Here's a xanalink to a scientific work--
Here's a xanalink to an early definition of "hypertext"
We believe that sources should be directly available from each quotation.
Consider this quote on the Origin of the Universe (by "Moe Juste")--
At the instant of Beginning, all matter and potential energy were infinitely compressed to a single point. Then time began and in the first fraction of a second this compressed conglomerate exploded, flying apart into a mutual web of co-created space and matter and energy.
Or consider this quote from Darwin)--
former rate, the present population of the United States (thirty millions),
would in 657 years cover the whole terraqueous globe so thickly, that four
men would have to stand on each square yard of surface.-
And now consider this quote from a scholarly journal--
And yet another quote from that scholarly journal--
(The journal needs to get paid for the content.)
We hope this new medium will be useful, enjoyable and deep.
