You'll be interested to know that I had conversations with Bob Perez
(who was the HyperCard evangelist at the time), Jean-Louis Gassee, and
others about putting HyperCard in the Mac ROM and adding a TCP/IP stack
to it. That would have *become* the Web and it would have been earlier
and better than what we ended up with. And Apple would have become a
standard instead of a fringe computer.
Gassee nixed the idea.
The rest, as they say, is history.
