As it turns out Vannevar Bush didn't coin the phrase hypertext although he lays out the concepts of the web in his collumn “As We May Think“ for the Atlantic Monthly. Clearly a brilliant visionary, he even considers the problems we now face with i/o devices and logical abstraction.

Of note, it seems that Vannevar was a logical positivist, it is intersting to see the dillema that has resulted in a now post modern world that, in large part, is sceptical in regards to truth.  The pressuppositions of this article assume that facts would be the overriding drive behind the choices of ones logical progression.
