Computer Lib Dream Machines
By Theodor Nelson

Theodor Nelson is an academic and computer visionary who is generally credited with creating the term "hypertext" in 1965. While hypertext had been conceived of as early as the 1940s, Nelson was the first to construct it within the context of the emerging computer technologies of the 1960s and 70s as a new mode of publication. The word "visionary" gets thrown around quite a bit when one talks about computers and the Internet: Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos ... all visionaries. And then you read this book, which originally appeared in the 1970s, based on ideas Nelson developed in the 1960s, and you discover what visionary really means. Dream Machines is a bona fide computer culture classic.

Home Computer Revolution
By Theodor Nelson

Published in 1977, before the advent of the Windows operating system, before the Macintosh, visionary Ted Nelson sets forth his predictions about the role of computers in our everyday world:
“The computers we are talking about are not mere numerical calculators, nor do they have fixed, specific purposes. They are general-purpose computers, capable of being set up for any conceivable human purpose. They can play music. They can play games. They can help you run a business. They can help you write. They can keep track of things… Soon they will affect our work, your leisure, your eyes, your ears, your world.”
Ted Nelson goes on to describe all of the applications in the future, including the World Wide Web which he envisioned as the World Library.

Literary Machines
By Theodor Neslon

Literary Machines is Ted Nelson’s hypertext chronicle of the development of Project Xanadu from concept to the latest developments. As science fiction, it would be wild and woolly. It’s even considered far out within the computer field, that fast-moving, anything-can-happen playground for the daring and independent.
This is the story of a corps of eccentric, brilliant and fanatical computer programmers, led by Nelson, a flamboyant idealist. They banded together to create a computer program to unite the world and bring peace, understanding and a new light to mankind. Twenty years later, this dedicated group developed a technically sound way of implementing Ted Nelson’s early vision and contributed to the advent of the internet.
