Steve Jobs said the computer is a bicycle for the mind. A bicycle is democratic: they are affordable, sustainable, anyone can use them, fix them etc.
But our computers are more like cars, not bicycles: expensive, complex, regulated, hard to fix, enhance etc.
Early software like HyperCard showed us a path where any enthusiasts can make something without the blessing of an elite class vampire billionaires and without having to move to Silicon Valley.
I read a study that measured the efficiency of locomotion for various species on the planet. The condor used the least energy to move a km. And, humans came in with a rather unimpressive showing, about a third of the way down the list... But, then somebody at Scientific American had the insight to test the efficiency of locomotion for a man on a bicycle. And, a man on a bicycle, a human on a bicycle, blew the condor away, completely off the top of the charts.
And that’s what a computer is to me.... the most remarkable tool that we’ve ever come up with, a bicycle for our minds
HyperCard was an early very successful Mac no-code app. A glorified filed-based database where every entry was represented as a card. It had a few characteristics:
It was used as address books, recipes or annotating ideas from documents. It got discontinued in 2004, but to this day it still has a massive following & the program achieved cult status.
Most rapid development applications (HyperCard or Excel) blend input and presentation so a user can play with them without interaction with code or a developer.
The program, the utility for the user, emerges from exploration. It is not something a developer hardcoded but rather a set of rules one can experiment with. Excel or Hypercard are designed more like a game than traditional software.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
