I am not a visionary. Therefore, I greatly admire visionaries and wonder how they do it.
Paul Otlet was a visionary. In 1934 he published a book titled Traité Documentation. In this book, Otlet envisions computers and the Internet and how they will eventually replace books since the books will be on the computer. He even predicts books with audio and video elements included in them—what we call enhanced ebooks today. Think about it. Otlet’s prediction was published about 80 years ago, long before desktop computers or the Internet, let alone the ebook.
