In 1945, the Memex was proposed as the ultimate personal library. In addition to storing information, users could navigate, organize, link, and share data with others.
Tragically, zero of these devices were ever produced, but 72 years later, I’ve build my own Memex in Ember. I’ve created dozens of importers for different services, organized the 10M+ data points into a graph schema, and built a frontend with Ember. Almost all aspects of my personal history is available through this app.
I’ll go over the history of the Memex, how I used Ember to build my own, and demo what I can do with it.
