25 years of HyperCard — the missing link to the Web

"I missed the mark with HyperCard," Atkinson lamented. "I grew up in a box-centric culture at Apple. If I'd grown up in a network-centric culture, like Sun, HyperCard might have been the first Web browser. My blind spot at Apple prevented me from making HyperCard the first Web browser."

HyperCard may not have been the first Web client, but as the 25th anniversary of its release approaches, I think that it deserves a more prominent place in the history of the Internet.
