About The Historic Hypertext Project

This project aims at collecting and running historic hypertext systems. We try to install them in virtual machines and provide information about their functionalities and technologies. This may be relevant for hypertext teaching or designing new hypertext systems.

On this website you can find information about already installed hypertext systems and systems we want to install (i.e., searching for the software or licenses). We also list other systems that use similar techniques or that are in some way related to hypertext.

Feel free to send us comments or suggestions about historic hypertext systems (preferrably via Twitter @hist_HT), including those related to the following questions:

  • Which hypertext systems should we add to our list of wanted systems?
  • Where do we get the software or licenses from?
  • Are there any tips or tricks regarding how to install, run, or configure hypertext systems?
