In the article, Foreseeing the Future: The Legacy of Vannevar Bush, the author Erine Malone highlights the writings of Bush and connects them to a modern day Memex-like creation. In Bush’s articles he discusses the ideas of linking similar information together, forming trails of related information, storing information, sharing information, and easily accessing that information. The ultimate goal of Bush was to organize the massive amount of information being generated today. It is important to note that all of these ideas were created long before the rise of the internet; thus, Bush is often credited for thinking of hypertext. Erine Malone connects Bush’s idea of Memex to a modern day Memex-like creation: Wikipedia. Wikipedia is an online webpage used for sharing information with interested users. This information often consists of several hyperlinks that provide the user with more information to specific topics within said article (essentially Bush’s idea of “linking” similar information together). Furthermore, this information is easily shared and edited by its viewers. This idea supports Bush’s Memex because he also focused on easily sharing information, which Wikipedia easily does! As one can see, Bush’s predictions of the future were very accurate, and we continue to strive towards Bush-like creations for managing large amounts of information.
