Book recommendation of the week
Cataloging the World: Paul Otlet and the Birth of the Information Age by Alex Wright. In 1934, 50 years before the first Web browser, Belgian thinker Paul Otlet described a system of networked computers that he called, “electric telescopes”. This network would enable people to search through millions of interrelated images, audio recordings and video documents. Read “Cataloging the World: Paul Otlet and the Birth of the Information Age” to discover more about the origins of the Internet.
