The Internet on paper - Mondothèque

The Internet on paper

From Mondothèque

Presentation March 18 in Bergen, Norway. Contribution to The extensions of many, a seminar curated by Dušan Barok for BEK, Bergen Center for Electronic Arts.

Mondotheque

In 1934, documentalist Paul Otlet wrote:

“Humanity is at a turning point in its history. The mass of available information is formidable. New instruments are necessary for simplifying and condensing it, or the intellect will never know how to overcome the difficulties which overwhelm it, nor realise the progress that it glimpses and to which it aspires”.

Otlet considered radio, cinema, micro-fiche, phonograph and television all worthy substitutes for the book as information carrier. He envisaged them interconnected into a ‘radiated library’, an intellectual multi-media machine that would support the publication, consultation and creation of knowledge.

From industrial heartland to the Internet age (screen-capture). Video published by The Mundaneum, 2014

Since 1993, the remains of Otlet’s extensive collection of documents are being cared for by The Mundaneum archive center in Mons. Located in a former mining region in the south of Belgium, Mons is also right next to Google’s largest datacenter in Europe. Due to the recent re-branding of Otlet as ‘founding father of the Internet’, and ‘visionary inventor of Google on paper’, The Mundaneum has called international attention to his oeuvre. The Internet giant thankfully accepted the gift of posthumous francophone roots, and adopted The Mundaneum in return.

‘The Internet on paper’ traces various narrations of media in and around the work of Paul Otlet. It is a contribution in the context of Mondothèque, a platform for experiments by artists, archivists and activists concerned about the state of infrastructures for knowledge production.

Whatever we may try to understand, the process of communication is always conditioned by techniques of articulation. Knowledge can hardly be replicated from one embodied mind across others simply because language, images and sounds are the stuff in between and tear us apart.

"Un catalogue ne se lit pas. il se consulte."

Un catalogue ne se lit pas. il se consulte. On y a recours pour des recherches variées qui portent tantôt sur un point, tantôt sur un autre. Elles doivent donc avoir un maximum de lisibilité et être disposées de manière que l’œil puisse aisément y découvrir l'élément désiré en faisant abstraction de tous les autres. Ce résultat peut être obtenu comme suit :

1° L'écriture sera particulièrement soignée. La lisibilité sera sa première qualité. Pas de lettres avec fioritures. Les noms propres seront écrits en caractères romains (majuscules des textes imprimés). On fera usage de grandeurs et de grosseurs variées suivant l’importance des éléments et l’opportunité de les mettre en lumière par des alternances dans leur disposition. 2° On aura soin de disposer les textes sur les fiches de manière que les indications mises en vedette appa raissent à la partie supérieure de la fiche, sans marge trop grande. Bases du classement, les vedettes doivent, lors de la consultation des répertoires, pouvoir être lues d’un coup d'œil, sans avoir besoin de découvrir toute la fiche. 3° Chaque élément formant la notice reçoit sa place fixe, toujours la même, déterminée par des raisons d’utililté et de corrélation et présentée sous une forme distinctive. Les duplicata, extraits ou inscriptions dérivées, reçoivent autant que possible, la même place et la même forme, de façon à réaliser le maximum d'unité, d'homogénéité, tant pour l'écriture que pour la lecture.

UDC and the Semantic Web

If the Semantic Web is viewed as a global database, then it is easy to understand why one would need a query language for that data.

In addition to the classic “Web of documents” W3C is helping to build a technology stack to support a “Web of data,” the sort of data you find in databases.

If the Semantic Web is viewed as a global database, then it is easy to understand why one would need a query language for that data.
