Blog#2: Historical Contexts

In the article, As We May Think by Vannevar Bush, the author predicted technology in the future.

He predicted the World Wide Web, hypertext, personal computer, speech recognition and Wikipedia. I have heard a funny story from someone that when scientists wish to create new inventions, they ask sci-fi Hollywood directors what they are going to have in their new movies. Like Einstein said, imagination is more important than knowledge.
