My memex

With respect to the idea of Vannevar Bush’s Memex [1] and Microsoft Research’s MyLifeBits Project, today I started to digitize all important papers from the last years. The first step was throwing away all nonrelevant stuff. So it is now only half of the amount of paper to scan. I think one of tho gratest challange will be the organisation of the data later on.

So the first steps to build my personal memex are:

  • scanning all major documents (letters, contracts, validations etc.)

  • digitizing the documents

  • indexing the content
