The Naturalist and the Neurologist: On Charles Darwin and James Crichton-Browne | The Public Domain Review - http://publicdomainreview.org/2014...
“Stassa Edwards explores Charles Darwin’s photography collection, which includes almost forty portraits of mental patients given to him by the neurologist James Crichton-Browne. The study of these photographs, and the related correspondence between the two men, would prove instrumental in the development of The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals (1872), Darwin’s study on the evolution of emotions.” • #удивительные_факты#схватил_за_мозг - × × ×
The Secret History of Hypertext - Alex Wright - The Atlantic - http://www.theatlantic.com/technol...
“Historians of technology often cite Bush’s essay as the conceptual forerunner of the Web. And hypertext pioneers like Douglas Engelbart, Ted Nelson, and Tim Berners-Lee have all acknowledged their debt to Bush’s vision. But for all his lasting influence, Bush was not the first person to imagine something like the Web. ¶ Chief among them was Paul Otlet, a Belgian bibliographer and entrepreneur who, in 1934, laid out a plan for a global network of “electric telescopes” that would allow anyone in the world to access to a vast library of books, articles, photographs, audio recordings, and films.” • #удивительные_факты#гипертекст - × × ×
Погодите, но ведь главный premise гипертекста это кросс-ссылочность. - социальный груффало
Ну, кросс-ссылочность может быть внутри твоего одного терминала, а может быть внутри сети таких терминалов. У Буша мемекс был самостоятельной машиной, насколько я помню. - × × ×
A plane has been in space for 500 days, and no one knows why » Techly - http://www.techly.com.au/2014...
“X-37B’s actual functions are still heavily classified. ¶ As you’d imagine, conspiracy theorists are having a field day, and here’s why: Powered by a solar panel that unfurls once in orbit, X-37B can open with small, shuttle-like payload bay in its middle – think of a clamshell opening from underneath. There’s room for more than just a solar panel too. Exactly what items it carries, and why they need to be in space so long, has proved elusive for analysts, the space community, and the media. ¶ To add further intrigue, the plane is classified as a secret project, yet maker Boeing has released pictures and more than two pages of details on the X-37B. That’s not how secrets are usually dealt with. By contrast, the secret Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird was not declassified until decades after it had been flown in the Vietnam War.” • #удивительные_факты - × × ×
