Apple HyperCard: Precursor to the First Web Browser
The Berkeley Cybersalon - Hillside Club
At the Berkeley Cybersalon, Bill Atkinson discusses the creation and legacy of the Apple HyperCard.It's only been 25 years since Bill Atkinson and his elite Apple team created HyperCard -- the hypermedia system that made programs like Myst and You Don't Know Jack possible before the World Wide Web or the founder of Facebook were barely conceived. Here's your chance to meet Bill and survivors of his team at the Berkeley Cybersalon, Sunday, August 12, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Hillside Club (www.hillsideclub.org), 2286 Cedar St., in Berkeley. Refreshments will be provided by Alacrity Software, maker of Infinite Canvas, an authoring app for the iPad inspired by HyperCard. Raines Cohen, co-founder of BMUG, will host, and we might have a few surprise guests join Bill on stage as well (not Steve Jobs, alas).
