Bill Atkinson’s work has inspired and enabled millions. One of those is Bret Victor, who has in turn inspired many, including myself. I credit Bret Victor with completely upending my way of thinking about programming (and what it can be), and he has made it clear that Hypercard (one of Bill’s influential projects) inspired him greatly. Hence the term intellectual grandfather.
