Chapman University to Host Intertwingled: A Celebration of the Work and Influence of Computer Iconoclast Ted Nelson


Orange, CA (PRWEB) April 03, 2014

Internet computing iconoclast Theodor Ted Nelson, Ph.D., will have his lifes work honored at Chapman University on April 24, in honor of the 40th anniversary of the publication of his book Computer Lib. In a conference called Intertwingled, Nelsons more than 50 years of influence in the world of personal and academic computing will be celebrated in talks by a dozen of todays leaders in technology and creativity. The event is open to the public.

It is not well known that Nelson invented movie editing by computer and realistic computer graphics, for which he filed early patent applications. Among Nelsons more notorious contributions throughout the advancement of the computer age are coining the terms hypertext and hypermedia among others, authoring several books such as Computer Lib, Literary Machines, Geeks Bearing Gifts and Possiplex, and he has spent more than 50 years working on his vision of a connected document world called Xanadu. Nelson was a Distinguished Visiting Professor at Chapman University during fall 2013, when he taught an Honors course entitled Cinema of the Mind.

Ted is a very unique individualhe formulated his ideas before the world was ready to understand them, but that has not deterred him from continuing to believe in a different future for the world of computing, said Daniele Struppa, Chancellor, Chapman University. Irreverent, and yet tender, he is the modern/high tech version of Don Quixote, and I say this with the greatest admiration for the immortal creation of Cervantes, continued Struppa.

Participants in the conference include notables in the tech world, including Turing Award winner (equivalent to a Nobel Prize in Computer Science) Alan Kay, creator of the Smalltalk programming language – the inspiration for todays windowing based systems; and who is best known for coining the phrase, “The best way to predict the future is to invent it.” Also participating is Dame Wendy Hall, former president of the Association for Computing Machinery and one of the first computer scientists to undertake serious research in multimedia, hypermedia and digital libraries.

The book being celebrated, Computer Lib, made the outrageous claim in 1974 that personal computing, computer graphics, interaction and hypertext would fuse into an oncoming wave that would revolutionize the worldabsurd, most people thought, said Nelson. After 40 years of Computer Lib being very right, here we are in a soup of resulting super-problems. Now theyre listening to me again, Nelson continued.

The son of show business parents his mother was an Oscar winning actress and his father an Emmy winning director Nelson initially was a filmmaker, actor, and author of a rock musical and numerous plays and periodicals. As early as 1960, he envisioned a world in which all mediadocuments, films, etc.would be connected and interacting with one another on a vast system of computers. Nelson coined the term intertwingled to express the philosophical complexity of the world and the difficulty of representing it.

Dr. Ted Nelsons book Computer Lib had a considerable influence on the personal computing world in its infancy. Nelsons effect on the development of hypertext systems has led the Association for Computing Machinerys Hypertext Conference to awarding the Ted Nelson Newcomer Award annually.

Women veterans are one of the fastest-growing populations of veterans. Now 10%, by 2020, they will constitute over 12% of all veterans.

As the nation celebrates Womens History Month, it is important to salute women Veterans for their accomplishments and contributions to society. They have broken barriers and capitalized on the many leadership opportunities afforded through military service. We know that women Veterans are models of character, courage and commitment who continue to blaze trails and open doors. I am honored by the fact that women veterans in general are being recognized in this nation for the work that weve done to keep everybody safe, says Ms. Daniel.

The Champions of Change program was created as an opportunity for the White House to feature individuals doing extraordinary things to empower and inspire members of their communities. The event will be moderated by The Honorable Gina S. Farrisee, Assistant Secretary, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Elisa Basnight, JD, MPA, Director of the Center for Women Veterans, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The event is closed to press but will be live streamed on the White House website. To watch this event live, please visit http://www.whitehouse.gov/live at 10:00 am ET on March 25th.
