The acronym WYSIWYG, for What You See Is What You Get, was supposed to convey the boons of new printing technology in the 1980s. “What it really means,” Nelson complained, “is What You Get When You Print is Ou. In other words, we are using the computer as paper simulator, which is like tearing the wings of a 747 and driving it as a bus on the highway.”

Sacado del capítulo Citizen Nelson (que habla de Ted Nelson) del libro Fire in the Valley, The Making of the Personal Computer escrito por Paul Freiberger y Michael Swaine.
