Book: Cataloging the World

June 2014
Cataloging the World was written by Alex Wright, a professor of interaction design at the School of Visual Arts and a contributor to The New York Times. He writes:

Paul Otlet was a Belgian bibliographer and entrepreneur who, in 1934, described something very much like the World Wide Web. Otlet was more than just a technological visionary, however. He saw his global network—the Mundaneum—as part of a utopian plan to accelerate social progress, unify the world’s governments, and ultimately foster a great spiritual awakening.
