Xanadu Hypertext Documents

Edición de 2019 en inglés en HTML.

Esta es una nueva edición por Alberto González Palomo de la propuesta del sistema Xanadú [Xanadu System Proposal] escrita por Chip Morningstar en 1984, a partir de la única copia existente conocida impresa el 1984-04-25 a las 12:45 PDT.

This is a document I wrote in early 1984 at the behest of the System Development Foundation as part of Xanadu’s quest for funding. It is a detailed explanation of the Xanadu architecture, its core data structures, and the theory that underlies those data structures, along with a (really quite laughable) project plan for completing the system.

At the time, we regarded all the internal details of how Xanadu worked as deep and dark trade secrets, mostly because in that pre- open source era we were stupid about intellectual property. As a consequence of this foolish secretive stance, it was never widely circulated and subsequently disappeared into the archives, apparently lost for all time. Until today!
