    Fascinating article Bill, especially to one of the last two people who worked on the Xanadu (hypertext) code.

    Besides making several of the top spots on the first page, xanadu "Ted Nelson" accounts for about 5% of the total hits on Xanadu.

    I think I have a current email contact for Ted. He may not remember, but I can ask him why he called the project Xanadu if you like.

    Best wishes,
