Internet Archive brings back HyperCard for today’s 30th anniversary

The Internet Archive blog:

On August 11, 1987, Bill Atkinson announced a new product from Apple for the Macintosh; a multimedia, easily programmed system called HyperCard. HyperCard brought into one sharp package the ability for a Macintosh to do interactive documents with calculation, sound, music and graphics. It was a popular package, and thousands of HyperCard “stacks” were created using the software.

And:

Flourishing for the next roughly ten years, HyperCard slowly fell by the wayside to the growing World Wide Web, and was officially discontinued as a product by Apple in 2004. It left behind a massive but quickly disappearing legacy of creative works that became harder and harder to experience.

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Hypercard, we’re bringing it back.

Interestingly, today is Woz’s birthday as well. Wonder if that’s a coincidence. Either way, go check it out.



  • Cool. They have a few of my old stacks up there:

    Not my best work but hey, it’s nice to be remembered.

    Atkinson rocked.

    I was fascinated by Hypercard products on my first Mac, but never dug very deeply into how it was made to work. I suppose my inability to program was the reason.
