or the oN-Line System, is often looked at as a mile marker in the
development of modern computing. It was the first system to use a
mouse, one of the first functional examples of hypertext, pioneered
remote collaboration, and so much more. But how much do you know
about NLS itself? In this series of episode I'm picking apart the
system behind the legend.
1 deals primarily with the early roots of NLS, Augmenting Human
Intellect, and Doug Engelbart's vision of hypertext. Surprisingly,
a lot of this episode has to do with punch cards and a more obscure
related technology: the edge notched card.
