Tinderbox review

Sean Carton, principal of Carton Donofrio, has reviewed Tinderbox for advertising portal ClickZ: The Best IA Tool You Never Heard Of.

"Tinderbox?" Yup, and I bet you never heard of it. It's made by Eastgate Systems, a small but incredibly innovative company that produced the first real commercial hypertext authoring system, Storyspace, years before the Web came along. Since then, it's continued to develop new versions of Storyspace, publish groundbreaking hypertext literature, and crank out a few nifty spin-off programs (such as the very cool Web Squirrel). It was here before so many Johnny-come-lately dot-coms came and went, bucking trends and putting out really smart stuff.
