If you like Otlet, . . .
http://people.ischool.berkeley.edu/~buckland/otlet.html

and check out Emmanuel Goldberg (a lot of Vannevar Bush's "memex" stuff

and, of course, if you hadn't already heard, "Hyperland" is now available
on WWW!

Hyperland was a "fantasy documentary" made in the late '80s and broadcast
on BBC in 1990. It was written by Douglas Adams, starring Tom Baker, based
on Ted Nelson's fantasies about internet, well before Cern built the early
WWW.
