Off Topic are posts where I talk about the human side of things.
As We May Think
Have you read Vannevar Bush's article
As We May Think? In that article he discusses an interesting concept:
"A System becoming an extension of human knowledge and memory which
may be consulted with exceeding speed and flexibility."
Now this might not seem groundbreaking to us for we have Computers, Internet and Search Engines (Google, DDG, etc.). However it's important to know that Hypertext, which is the backbone of internet, was created thanks to the inspiration taken from Memex, which is the name of the system Bush proposed.
