Nothing new under the sun

Keith July 22nd, 2007

“An immense and ever-increasing wealth of knowledge is scattered about the world today; knowledge that would probably suffice to solve all the mighty difficulties of our age, but it is dispersed and unorganised. We need a sort of mental clearing house: a depot where knowledge and ideas are received, sorted, summarized, digested, clarified and compared.”

 - H.G. Wells in The Brain: Organization of the Modern World, 1940.
