The demo…


The demo I want to talk about took 6 years to prepare:

NLS is an instrument for helping humans operate within the domain of complex information structures. By “operate” Doug means compose, study and modify. By “complex information structures” Doug says that content represents concepts, but there is also a relation between the content of concepts, their structure, and the structure of other domains of human thought that is too complex to investigate in linear text.

Sound like the world wide web? Except the demo is done in 1968 by Dong Engelbart :-)
