Ted Nelson, a charismatic prophet who invented the concepts of hypertext and hypermedia, gave the 2006 Arts and Media Informatics Lecture at 4.00pm - 5.00pm on 22 May 2006. His visionary ideas also gave us hyperlinking, a lesser version of which powers the World Wide Web. This lecture was a unique chance for staff and students to hear one of the legends of the informatics revolution.
