Remember tiddlywiki? From the halcyon days of the mid-2000s when wikis were still kinda weird?

Well, they're still developing it.

It is uncannily delightful to play around with. It reminds me a lot of smalltalk, that tangled "here's a complete ball of tools you can use to edit the ball of tools" feeling. The feeling of downloading entire "binary" images which comprise the ball, even though in tiddlywiki's case, it's much more obviously all text.
