Vannevar Bush, artists && how/why we do History

Like I mentioned in the last video it’s hard to know where to start any historical narrative… I chose to start the wwweb’s history in the 60’s because there were a set of ideas in the air at the time which would be key to how the wwweb works but also very much in line with how artists work and this series is about that intersection. But another series could have started the wwweb’s story somewhere else, for example most wwweb history essays/books begin this story in the 40’s, with a hugely influential Atlantic magazine article called “As We May Think”1 written by an American scientist/engineer named Vannevar Bush.
