Alan Kay and the Dynabook

“This note speculates about the emergence of personal, portable information manipulators and their effects when used by both children and adults. Although it should be read as science fiction, current trends almost guarantee that many of the notions discussed will actually happen in the near future.” — Alan C. Kay, 1972

If you are interested in how the future is made, this is a worthwhile read. I’m betting at least few people at Apple did.
