Today Theodore Holm Nelson, "father of hypermedia", received his first
award for his pioneering work.  He was honoured with this year's
Yuri Rubinsky Insight Foundation (http://www.yuri.org/) lifetime
achievement award.  The award this year was in the form of a didgeridoo
(an Australian Aboriginal musical instrument) and is accompanied by a
cheque for US$10,000.

Congratulations Ted!
