Got to check that one out. I met Bill Atkinson in 1985 or 6 at Boston MacWorld Expo. I think I might have stuttered being in the presence of the guy who made MacDraw and Hypercard.
I started programming in Hypercard the day after I had a beta version in my hands. That first week of creating hypercard stacks for everything that was not glued down in my lab was about as cool as it gets. Then some added language and it could go out and grab info from databases at NIH. It didn't seem legal. That became DNA HyperBlast which I can find in my blog from September 1994. That was cool stuff. The internet existed long before dot com and it was the wild west.
