    Interview with Pamela Hardt-English

    Interview with Pamela Hardt-English

    Pamela Hardt-English was the driving force behind Resource One — the first computerized bulletin board system that linked centers of counterculture across the Bay Area in the 1970s. She strived to provide people who didn’t consider themselves computer users (like social workers and hippies) with a resource network for anything they needed. Pam’s work was part of the earliest vanguard of personal computing, which anticipated the rise of the Internet decades later.

    Interview with Louis Pouzin

    Interview with Louis Pouzin

    Louis Pouzin is one of the titans of internet communication. In the early 1970s, he invented the datagram, paving the way for packet communications networks and the internet as a revolutionary tool for distributing information. Vint Cerf and Robert Kahn both cite Pouzin as a major influence in the development of the TCP/IP protocols that make up the heart of our modern-day internet. He was also foundational to France's version of ARPANET, CYCLADES.

    We talked to Pouzin, who now lives in France, about the current shape of the internet, its influence on mass culture, and how to prepare for what it will become in both the near and distant future.

    Interview with Ted Nelson

    Interview with Ted Nelson

    Ted Nelson is the founding designer of Xanadu, the world's first hypertext project. Xanadu's influence on the Internet as we know it today is unmistakable. Ted coined the word "hypertext" to describe non-sequential writing — but clickable links are only the start of his expansive vision for digital technology. His ideas have influenced projects ranging from Objective-C to the original WWW to entire political philosophies about the role computing tools should play in our lives.

    Interview with Stu Card

    Interview with Stu Card

    Stu Card began work in Human Computer Interaction before it even had a name. His was the first PhD in the discipline, and Stu has made fundamental contributions to HCI including the design of Englebart's mouse and Information Foraging theory.

    In his work at Xerox PARC and beyond, Stu has always emphasized "theories with a purpose", the idea that academic HCI theories should have practical value and be incorporated into practice.

    Interview with Andy Hertzfeld

    Interview with Andy Hertzfeld

    Welcome to the first episode of Tools & Craft! We spoke with Andy Hertzfeld, a member of the team that built the original Macintosh.

    We’ve all seen the legendary Apple keynotes and how personal computing has transformed the way we live and work, but what I was really interested to learn from Andy was what it was like to shape that vision from scratch.
