There's nothing new in today's NYT feature on Ted Nelson, but I do love those photographs. I wonder whether I'll run across any record of when I read Computer Lib; these reading logs or journals keep surfacing as we try to become better organized. Meeting my distribution requirements meant that Nelson was one semester and my Skinnerian live pigeon was the other semester; that was all, since I had four years of high-school credit for science and four for math. I seem to remember that our reading list (and this was before the earliest picture in today's article) included Margaret Mead, Ruth Benedict, Veblen, and lots of Erving Goffman, but more I don't remember. Wikipedia on Nelson seems to cover plenty.
