Project Xanadu

Ted Nelson is the founder of Project Xanadu
Ted's thinking is in multiple contexts.
He has tried for years to introduce something better than a web full of broken links.

For example a xanadoc is represented as two lists: a list of content and a list of overlays
xanadu.com/xanasimp

Ted describes himself as a "Systems Humanist", thinking of the tapestry of information.

Quote from the interview: "Good UI; make some choices obvious, hide the other less common ones."

Triangulation interview 164:
Note: Duration exceeds 1 hour so consider getting the audio from iTunes.
