Hyperland

Hyperland is a 50-minute long documentary film about hypertext and surrounding technologies. It was written by Douglas Adams and produced and directed by Max Whitby…

Danielle M. Villegas‘s insight:

This is so awesome! I came across this via one of my Doctor Who connections/groups on Google+. Of course, having Tom Baker (the actor who played the 4th Doctor) and Douglas Adams (most known as the author of "The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy") doesn’t hurt! We talked a lot about hypertext theory when I was a tech comm grad student, and having a good understanding of this applies to all technical communicators–what is your content? How did your audience get to that content? How do we personalize it? Where could your audience be directed from your content? I wish I had known about this little documentary back in grad school! I think it would’ve been most helpful–and a fun way to learn the basics, even if the context is a little outdated since this was made in the early 1990s.  A good refresher for all technical communicators!
