Otlet's Mundaneum

There is an interesting article about Paul Otlet in the New York Times of June 18, 2008. It includes pictures and a short movie clip.

Otlet's Mundaneum may be be considered as an early attempt to achieve, with index cards and a device called "electric telesope," what the World Wide Web has achieved.

Also interesting in this context is the following entry on edge-nodged cards.

Without further comment.
