- 50 years ago today the word “hypertext” was introduced by Byron Reese, GigaOm (Aug. 24, 2015 – 1:59 AM PDT).
On August 24, 1965 Ted Nelson used the word “hypertext” (which he coined) in a paper he presented at the Association for Computing Machinery. I was able to interview him earlier this month about the event and his early thoughts on the future of computing.
