Information in places (20 May 1999)
The bottom line is that while there is clear utility to being able to better associate information with places, it is less clear how that capability will ultimately be realized. As the "memex" example helps to illustrate, WorldBoard will probably be realized using technologies far more intriguing than the simple positioning, communication, and display technologies described in this paper and that we are familiar with today. Nevertheless, by one technological route or another, we are on the verge of being able to put information in its place on a planetary scale.
