I have written before about Maxthink, one of the early outline processors, well on the way towards hypertext. I really liked the program and regret I no longer have a copy. Somehow, I never took to the Windows version. In this, I am similar to the author of the blog "The Aware Writer," who, I was very sad to notice, passed away earlier this year. His posts on how to run the DOS version of MaxThink on a modern operating system did inspire me. See here.
I did not know the man, but I will miss his blog! I suppose that is a way of saying that I will miss him.
