What should I do with all these visual memories? (See high-res)
In relation to the above video, here’s an excerpt from Vannevar Bush’s “As We May Think“, published in The Atlantic Monthly, July 1945: Pg 101-108:
Other Bush notions about mechanical aids to thought: a recording machine that would type when talked to, with a radio connection making it possible for the busy executive to record an idea for the microfilm library when he is away from his office; a camera the size of a walnut (worn on the forehead) which would take stereoscopic pictures in full color.
Dr. Bush considers all these suggestions “commonplace,” attainable by combining devices already in use or in development. Says he: “The world has arrived at an age of cheap complex devices of great reliability; and something is bound to come of it.”
Imagine… it took me 62 years to make the above a reality. Other than the Memex, Bush really had something going.
