EVERYTHING IS DEEPLY INTERTWINGLED. In an important sense there are no "subjects" at all; there is only all knowledge, since the cross-connections among the myriad topics of this world simply cannot be divided up neatly.

Theodor Holm Nelson wrote those words 40 years ago in his book, Computer Lib. In honor of the 40th anniversary of the publication of Computer Lib, Chapman University is hosting a conference, "INTERTWINGLED: The Work and Influence of Ted Nelson,” on April 24, 2014. 

The conference “INTERTWINGLED: The Work and Influence of Ted Nelson” will examine and honor the work and influence of this computer visionary and re-imagine its meaning for the future.

The conference will take place in the Chapman University Boardroom, Argyros Forum 2nd floor, from 9:30 a.m. - 5:45 p.m. Dr. Ted Nelson will provide the conference's concluding remarks beginning at 5:15 p.m. A conference blog has been created for people to share reminiscences and stories about Ted and his work. Please feel encouraged to add your own!

Inquiries can be made to Doug Dechow at dechow@chapman.edu or phone  (714) 532-7781.
