We’re excited for Hyperlink’s latest launch batch — our biggest one yet, with an awesome array of new courses and a total of a dozen cohorts open for enrollment!
From antifragile writing to infinite art-making; language learning to home conservation; tabletop games to neighborhood-scale cybernetic design; Indigenous worldviews to neostalgic computing; comics-creation to esoteric programming languages…
Now open for enrollment! View all here: All Hyperlink Courses

A club for comics making aimed at building creative solidarity and exploring the medium. Weekly drawing + writing activities, discussion opportunities and a set of ongoing group projects <3
Explore systems for creating an infinite number of works of art, both imaginary and real. Embrace playful systems for inspiration and art-making, and create a personal generative art-making system.
Learn about early stage design by defining your idea for neighborhood scale software. Examining cybernetics and Ostromian economics, we’ll explore theory while applying it to the design process.
Explore programming languages that eschew practicality and challenge received ideas of what computation is and how languages are designed — from obfuscatory to minimalist to non-textual and beyond.
How to make writing less fragile, more robust, even antifragile—following N. Taleb’s concept—using Roam Research, a note-taking and knowledge management app well-suited to make sense of disorder.
In this class we’ll explore minimalistic “rules light” rulesets for tabletop games. See how they can quickly shape players sense of a world and focus the kind of stories being told then build our own.
An accessible introduction to the science and practice of language learning. You’ll build a toolkit you can use for a lifetime of more confident language acquisition.
Roleplay as secret agents and supervillains as you learn to apply museum knowledge on preventive conservation and create tailored preservation measures for your own home collections.
An introduction to Indigenous teachings, histories and world views for non-Indigenous people living across Turtle Island. Begin to foster a balanced and respectful relationship with the land.
Through a speculative design process, we’ll reflect on our relationships with computing technologies and reimagine them from a hyper-personal, retrospective, and healing lens.
Also, special shoutout to the Citizens of Hypertext Club with Jad & Prakhar, exploring new potential futures for the internet and social computing. This just started, and actually filled up before we even announced it!
These courses have already run successful cohorts — now they’ve scheduled new ones:
Explore new styles of graphical user interface design inspired by art history movements.
Build yourself a home on the internet (a website) with a toolchain you understand from the ground up.
We’re deploying a special technology for networked pedagogical dissemination: the Learning Energy Amplitude Retweet Network.
