Watched Hyperland
Finally watched Hyperland, the documentary by Douglas Adams about hypermedia.

And… it’s every bit as fantastic as you would expect.

They interview Ted Nelson, discuss Vannevar Bush, Doug Engelbart, Xanadu, Kurt Vonnegut, Guernica + the Spanish Civil War, the shape of stories and non-linearity… and lots more. It feels a bit like it was directed by Terry Gilliam.

And oh yeah – Tom Baker plays Douglas Adams’ hypermedia software agent.
