The Knowledge Web

Edge has a note from 2000 by Danny Hills, along with commentaries by various luminaries. Hills calls his concept “Aristotle” and writes: “With the knowledge web, humanity’s accumulated store of information will become more accessible, more manageable, and more useful. Anyone who wants to learn will be able to find the best and the most meaningful explanations of what they want to know. Anyone with something to teach will have a way to reach those who what to learn. Teachers will move beyond their present role as dispensers of information and become guides, mentors, facilitators, and authors. The knowledge web will make us all smarter. The knowledge web is an idea whose time has come.” Hills also has a reference to the Memex vision of Vannevar Bush.
