Ted Nelson invented the term 'hypertext' in 1965, and is a pioneer of
information technology. He also coined the words transclusion and
Ted Nelson is admired as a modern philosopher who worked in the fields of
information, computers, and human-machine interfaces. He founded Project
Xanadu in 1960 with the goal of creating such a system on a computer
network, further documented in his 1974 book Computer Lib / Dream Machines
and the 1981 Literary Machines.
The Xanadu project itself failed to take off, but its vision is in the
process of being fulfilled by Tim Berners-Lee's invention of the World Wide
Web that owes much of its inspiration to Xanadu.
Nelson hates the World Wide Web, the Internet, XML and all embedded markup,
and regards Berners-Lee's work as a gross over-simplification of his own work.
He is currently working on a new information structure, ZigZag, information
about which can be found off the Xanadu project home page, which also
contains two versions of the Xanadu code.
He is the son of the Academy Award-winning actress, Celeste Holm.
