Hypercard is back, baby [1]….

Hypercard is back, baby. Great Wired News piece on Hypercard, the graphic programming toolkit that started shipping with the Mac in 1989. I picked up programming again, after a five-or-so year hiatus, once I got my first Mac that shipped with Hypercard (it was my beloved SE, “Kali the Destroyer”), and ended up earning my living on Hypercard, doing contract programming gigs (including coding for two of Voyager’s CDROMs) until the Web came along in about 1992. There are still 10,000 Hypercard users worldwide, and many critical applications are still controlled by Hypercard stacks. Link Discuss [Boing Boing Blog]
