The diagram at the top of the this page represents the nature of hypermedia links as both the static, discrete node-link relationships characteristics of traditional hypertext and as the dynamic, continuous forms seen in contemporary systems. Each node in the diagram is active and links to a key concept, such as spatial hypertext, or project, such as HyperCafe. The spiral represents the continuum of time from 1945, when the Memex article was published, through the most recent conference, Hypertext'96. A click anywhere on the spiral links to a time-based presentation of the key projects and people at that point in time.
