Notes and comments
Link items and annotate As We May Think (1945)by Vannevar Bush : As We May Think (1945)by Vannevar Bush “[Man] has built a civilization so complex that he needs to mechanize his records more fully if he is to push his experiment to its logical conclusion and not merely become bogged down part way there by overtaxing his limited memory. His excursions may be more enjoyable if he can reacquire the privilege of forgetting the manifold things he does not need to have immediately at hand, with some assurance that he can find them again if they prove important.” MyLifeBits: Fulfilling the Memex Vision : MyLifeBits: Fulfilling the Memex Vision System for storing personal digital media: documents, images, sounds, and videos
