Dave posts a response from Jakob providing some explanation behind his "teaching kids how to author hypertext" comment. Apparently I misunderstood what he was saying, as I assumed hypertext to mean HTML, but Jakob says he was referring, "to a deeper understanding of the term than simply the current implementation." As examples, he mentions several systems with which I'm not familiar (Intermedia, NoteCards), and which he explains in his book, Multimedia and Hypertext: The Internet and Beyond. Would HyperCard fit into what he's talking about? I wish someone had taught me more about hypertext, I feel like I've missed the point completely.
