The Memory Be Green

Belinda Barnet’s superb study of the early history of early hypertext, Memory Machines: The Evolution of Hypertext, has just arrived. The lively book has chapters on Memex, NLS, Xanadu, HES/FRESS, and Storyspace, and many anecdotes not widely known. Full review at a more leisured time.
