HyperCard is a powerful non‐linear database management facility which allows discrete elements or parcels of information (text and graphic) to be linked and manipulated on the basis of patterns of association. The generic, hypertext, on which it is based is not new, but the recent proliferation of applications suggests that the technology has come of age. The author looks at the theory and the background to hypertext, generalised applications and, in particular, at a large‐scale project based in the Strathclyde Business School to create an electronic conspectus on the life and times of the City of Glasgow—Glasgow Online.
