About This Site

This is a difficult talk. At many times, the slides and notes discuss different things. This is intentional. Everything is intertwingled.

The stories told here are works of fiction. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, is completely coincidental.

This site was generated automatically from the slides used in the Hypertext '99 talk. The talk was presented with PowerPoint -- a program I deplore in most situations, but if there is an occasion for a PowerPoint presentation, this surely was one.

PowerPoint's HTML export facilities are better than nothing, but they're marginal at best. A better Web site will come shortly, but these slides might assist some readers in the interim.

A few slides may be hard to read, and some may prove illegible. Feel free to contact Mark Bernstein with any questions.
