WHAT I DO
I build paradigms. I work on complex ideas and make up words for them. It is the only way. (Without new words, it is almost impossible to think new thoughts-- we just go around in circles.)•
Here are some ideas I have worked on. I have omitted those for which there are presently no Web pages.Personal computing (a new idea in the 1960s, when I started-- now familiar, though still done all wrong).There is far too much to say, and far too little time to say it.
Hypertext (a new idea in the 1960s, when I started); now familiar, though still done all wrong).
Parallel hypertext, a fundamental idea of hypertext that fits no one else's paradigm; at last available as the CosmicBook(tm) parallel text reader.
The Xanadu model (still a new idea to most people), for doing parallel hypertext with non-breaking two-way links, version management, controversy management, annotation and copyright management. in one clean and simple structure. Most people still don't get it.
