I love the artistry and creativity around the HyperCard community.
Years ago I stumbled on this (wonderfully dorky) episode of Computer Chronicles, that focuses on HyperCard:
I love how the used-car salesman created his own application to help potential buyers find the right car. This was truly the “bicycle of the mind” era for computing; the user base was fairly self-selected, and people wanted to take full advantage of this new tool. .
The range of HyperCard was pretty amazing — famously, Myst was originally created with it:
I participated in a HyperCard game jam this weekend... I'm not much of a programmer and have never made a game before, but it was so easy to get something up and running.
I will probably make some more things in HyperCard when inspiration strikes.
