On August 11, 1987, Bill Atkinson announced a new product from Apple for the Macintosh; a multimedia, easily programmed system called HyperCard. HyperCard brought into one sharp package the ability for a Macintosh to do interactive documents with calculation, sound, music and graphics. It was a popular package, and thousands of HyperCard “stacks” were created using the software.
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Hypercard, we’re bringing it back.
I’m just a year older than HyperCard, and by the time I made it to the Mac, it was already long gone, but going through these archives has really opened my eyes as to how powerful and flexible this software was.
