Interview with Ted Nelson
Ted Nelson is the founding designer of Xanadu, the world's first hypertext project. Xanadu's influence on the Internet as we know it today is unmistakable. Ted coined the word "hypertext" to describe non-sequential writing — but clickable links are only the start of his expansive vision for digital technology. His ideas have influenced projects ranging from Objective-C to the original WWW to entire political philosophies about the role computing tools should play in our lives. --- You can find the full video interview, photos, transcripts, and more info about Tools & Craft here: notion.so/tools-and-craft Ted: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ted_Nelson Notion: twitter.com/NotionHQ Devon: twitter.com/DevonZuegel

His was the first PhD in the discipline, and Stu has made fundamental contributions to HCI including the design of Englebart's mouse and Information Foraging theory.

Interview with Andy Hertzfeld
Welcome to the first episode of Tools & Craft! We spoke with Andy Hertzfeld, a member of the team that built the original Macintosh. We’ve all seen the legendary Apple keynotes and how personal computing has transformed the way we live and work, but what I was really interested to learn from Andy was what it was like to shape that vision from scratch. --- You can find the full video interview, photos, transcripts, and more info about Tools & Crafts here: notion.so/tools-and-craft Notion: https://twitter.com/NotionHQ Andy: https://twitter.com/AndyHertzfeld Devon: https://twitter.com/DevonZuegel
