Title
¬The other Memex : the tangled career of Vannevar Bush's information machine, the Rapid Selector
Source
Journal of the American Society for Information Science. 43(1992) no.10, S.648-657
Year

Abstract
Argues that Vannevar Bush, generally thought to have had a great deal of influence of the development of computerized information retrieval systems, had much less to do with its development than was once believed. Examines the case histories of 2 machines which came closest to the realisation of his famous Memex concept: the Comparator; and the Rapid Selector and points to the less than successful attempts to develop machines to assist US codebreakers and future libraries
