Going Into the Woods, by Christine Boese
Summer of '92
As I was driving I wondered to myself what it would take to make multimedia, hypermedia, and the Internet really tremendous and exciting (as opposed to tedious and boring, as much of it still is). At that time CD-ROMs were very rare and few titles on the market could even call themselves multimedia. (Manhole was the only thing I had seen worth squat.) Time-Warner hadn't even jumped on the bandwagon yet.
I had stumbled upon the video of Tom Stoppard's play, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, and was considering it for the film series at Arkansas Governor's School, where I had been teaching for the summer. For fun I made a futile attempt to run lines of Hamlet during the backstage scenes, to see if they timed out right.
