Damn I miss Hypercard. I have such fond memories playing around with it before school in Junior High. Hypercard was not only the first program that ever learned to do some basic, and I mean basic code in but it is also the first application that I ever used to draw in.
When my family finally got a PC at home we got an IBM PC with DOS and Windows 3.1 so I never got to play with Hypercard anywhere else except the school computer library. Even though that was the case I never forgot about it. Once I got older I started to dig around about it more only to find out that I was hardly even scratching the surface of what you could do in Hypercard. People made games, which is what I did but they also made their own software or education tools.
Steve Jobs has been quoted as saying that the computer is the bicycle for the mind. I think that is 100% true and I would dare say that Hypercard turned your bicycle into a custom built motorcycle.
