Project Xanadu

Project Xanadu was founded by Ted Nelson in 1960 as the original hypertext project.

Project Xanadu products and services exist today as prototypes or proposals.

Ted Nelson's published his visionary ideas in his 1974 book Computer Lib / Dream Machines and the 1981 Literary Machines .

Many of Project Xanadu's proposed features have found their way into other hypertext systems, including the World Wide Web and WikiWiki systems. Some of Xanadu's most innovative features, such as general-purpose transclusion and micropayments, have yet to be deployed in any widespread way.
