Project Xanadu and Web Annotations

I was watching Werner Herzogs movie Lo and Behold a little while ago, and after reading about Web Annotations today I immediately thought back to Ted Nelsons Project Xanadu and thought, wow, both ideas seem perfect for SAFE.

Here’s a video demo Project Xanadu: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72M5kcnAL-4

Heres a great talk he gave at homebrew reunion regarding his vision: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-Ma2MZpUQQ

(I realize theres an old thread mentioning xanadu aswell, but it’s from 2014, so I thought it just as well to create a new one)

Edit: His ideas on micropayments seem to mesh extremely well with safecoin as well.
