Beat Signer - Department of Computer Science - bsigner@vub.ac.be 18September 26, 2014 "As We May Think" (1945) When data of any sort are placed in storage, they are filed alphabetically or numerically, and information is found (when it is) by tracing it down from subclass to subclass. It can be in only one place, unless duplicates are used; one has to have rules as to which path will locate it, and the rules are cumbers- ome. Having found one item, moreover, one has to emerge from the system and re-enter on a new path. The human mind does not work that way. It operates by association. ... Vannevar Bush

It affords an immediate step, however, to associative indexing, the basic idea of which is a provision whereby any item may be caused at will to select immediately and automatically another. This is the essential feature of the memex. The process of tying two items together is the important thing. ... Vannevar Bush, As We May Think, Atlanic Monthly, July 1945 Vannevar Bush

  24. 24. Beat Signer - Department of Computer Science - bsigner@vub.ac.be 24September 26, 2014 Digital Documents as a Paper Simulator? Most people don't understand the logic of the concept: "What You See Is What You Get" is based on printing the document out ("get" means "get WHEN YOU PRINT IT OUT"). And that means a metaphysical shift: a document can only consist of what can be printed! This re-froze the computer document into a closed rectangular object which cannot be penetrated by outside markings (curtailing what you could do with paper). No marginal notes, no sticky notes, no crossouts, no insertions, no overlays, no highlighting - PAPER UNDER GLASS.
