I chose to read an article discussing the Bush's original idea of the memex. The article discusses that while Bush's ideas were good, today's microfilm technology has still not advanced enough for his vision to be fully realized. However, the author says that Bush's "vision remains intact and very much alive in hypermedia." The author specifically references Mac computers when saying that the basis of Bush's ideas are there but that the media has changed saying that "electronic storage and display implements are used rather than the microfilm technology." But, overall the author is very optimistic about the future because he suggested that the biggest obstacle to the widespread use of hypermedia is the high cost of mass storage and that society is getting better and better in that aspect of technology. I agree somewhat with this commentary because I do believe that the basics of the Bush's ideas are in play today, just not to the extent that he predicted, which is what the author suggests. For example, Bush predicted people would be sending microfilms back and forth. While that hasn't happened yet, we still use things like email is a very similar concept. However, I disagree with the author's level of optimism on our mass storage prospects in the future. I don't think we are that close to the type of unlimited storage that Bush talked about in his articles.
