Imagine the following scenario. You press the in-box button and have the following conversation with your computer:
What drawer do you want to open?
You click "sources".
What is the name of the author?
W. Lambert "Scot" Gardiner.
What is the title of the book?
The Ubiquitous Chip: The Human Impact of Electronic Technology.
Where, by whom, and when was it published?
Hudson Heights, Quebec: Scot & Siliclone, 1987.
What are the keywords?
INFORMATION FUTURE FEAR HOPE.
(The relevant four keywords from a dynamic system of about 100 keywords which I use to organise information within the Siliclone.)
I am now entering this information into your siliclone.
You now press the out-box button and have the following conversation with your computer:
What keyword(s) do you want me to look for?
FEAR and FUTURE
In which drawer(s) do you want me to look?
I am looking ----- here they are.
(The computer searches through all the drawers, finds all the cards which have been keyed to both FEAR and FUTURE - including the one you have just entered - and puts the stack of cards in the out-box.) This system is not yet available but I'm working on it.
