Hyperland

A documentary by Douglas Adams about hypermedia.

Every bit as fantastic as you would expect.

They interview Ted Nelson, discuss Vannevar Bush, Doug Engelbart, Xanadu, Kurt Vonnegut, Guernica + the Spanish Civil War, the shape of stories and non-linearity… and lots more. It feels a bit like it was directed by Terry Gilliam.

And oh yeah - Tom Baker plays Douglas Adams' hypermedia software agent.
