I checked outside and there was a package from Eastgate. What could this be? I wondered. They’d already sent me my copy of Tinderbox. Inside was a card boldly stating “commodity. delight. firmness. The Craft of Hypertext.” and a note of thanks from Mark.

Tinderbox’s development has been unlike any other software I know. It had the hand-crafted feel of a labor of love, the style and attention to detail of a commercial product, and the open minds and ears of a small company. Mark is rightfully proud of his creation.
