The author of this book, Ted Nelson has always been a visionary himself, and his seminal vision and coining of the word "hypertext" was way, way, ahead of the curve. It's a fun read, and really in the style of the times.
The word "visionary" gets thrown around quite a bit when one talks about computers and the Internet: Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos ... all visionaries. And then you read this book, which originally appeared in the 1970s, based on ideas Nelson developed in the 1960s, and you discover what visionary really means.
Dream Machines is a bona fide computer culture classic; it is shocking that such an influential and important book is out of print.
I need a copy for myself.
