The Electronic Whole Earth Catalog is an early CD-ROM presenting The Whole Earth Catalog in the form of HyperCard v1.2.2 Stack media. It consists of over 9000 HyperCard "cards" connected via HyperText and HyperTalk, HyperCard's markup language.

The DL consists of a zipped "iso" CD ROM image file. Once extracted, mount the Whole Earth Catalog's "iso" image folder onto a running Macintosh Desktop and double-click "HyperCard" (or "Home") to launch.

This presentation can run from CD ROM, or from the mounted .iso image file.

This .iso image can also be drag and dropped into a running Mini vMac window to mount it and run the included software in Macintosh Systems from at least SSW 5.x and up.

Keep this image locked at all times, if you wish to preserve the Date & Time stamps of the original media.

This image was created using the Virtual CD/DVD ROM Utility. The image can be burned back to CD media, or mounted by double-clicking the .iso image in classic Mac OS's 7.0 to 9.2.2 (if you have the utility also installed on your classic Mac OS). If extracting this archive using a classic Macintosh OS, for best results use MacZip to unzip and use the Virtual CD/DVD Utility to mount the image onto your desktop.

Originally sourced from the Internet Archive this .iso image has been cleaned and returned to its original released condition. Date & Time stamps have been restored and the image can now be mounted on Macintosh Systems 6 and earlier (the Internet Archive copies were Finder written-to in 2020 and contained artifacts not found in Macintosh Systems before 1991).

Architecture: 68k

Included on this CD-ROM image is HyperCard version 1.2.2

This .iso image is suitable for mounting on Macintosh Systems, 5, 6, & 7. - Running this Hyper-media in even later Mac OS's may require using a newer version of HyperCard.
