An Antiquated Observation on Computer Memory Storage

The first thing to face is that we shall not store all the technical and scientific papers in computer memory. We may tore the parts that can be summarized most succinctly--the quantitative parts and the reference citations--but not the whole. Books are among the most beautifully engineered, and human-engineered, components in existence, and they will continue to be functionally important within the context of man-computer symbiosis. (Hopefully, the computer will expedite the finding, delivering, and returning of books.)


MemexPlex stores summarized data for convenience, just the memes, but this author believes storing all published information would be impossible. In his time, it was.
