CATALOGING THE WORLD: Paul Otlet and the Birth of the Information Age
Beginning in the late 19th century, Paul Otlet, a librarian by training, worked at expanding the potential of the catalog card, the world's first information chip. It was the first step towards our current digital world. In this engaging intellectual history, Wright gives Otlet his due, placing him in the continuum of visionaries who have struggled to classify knowledge.
