Questions Inspired by Engelbart and Nelson

Reading selections from Doug Engelbart’s Augmenting Human Intellect: A Conceptual Framework and Ted Nelson’s Computer Lib opened up several questions:

  • What vision of the human is presented in these readings?
  • How do the ideas of Bush, Engelbart and Nelson (BEN?) compare to each other?
  • According to BEN, how can computers aid in the construction of knowledge?
  • What do we make of the style used by BEN?
