Do you guys remember Gumby? The green plasticine guy from kids TV show.
Wow I just remembered him, and that he can link into books. I checked out the website.
http://www.gumbyworld.com/
This guys from the 50s-60s. And there is a page on the site about the linking:
http://www.gumbyworld.com/memorylane/histgum10.htm
So there I just thought I'd point that out.

Oh in case your wondering why its relevant to Myst, there are special books in Myst which allow you to link like Gumby! (well duh!)

There are 10 kinds of people in the world: People who know binary and people who don't.

I've seen Gumby link before. Pretty cutting-edge for the early 1960s. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif
