Where Did I Find That?
Do you ever worry about where you found that missing item of crucial
information? If so, CILIP in London's October meeting is for you.
Here are the details:
Date: Tuesday 10 October 2006
Time: 6.30 pm
Speakers: Megan and Nigel Hamilton, Trexy.com
Venue: The Sekforde Arms, Sekforde Street, London EC1
In 1945 Vannevar Bush wrote what has become a classic article on Memex, a
system for organising the world's knowledge through the development of
databases linked by human 'trail-blazers'. It became one of the inspirations
behind the World Wide Web and modern search engines.
The Hamiltons have gone a step further: they created technology allowing
people to follow both their own search trails and those of others, without
having to worry about how they answered those elusive questions.
Megan and Nigel will discuss the origins of their idea and reveal how to
follow search trails.
Nigel is the CEO, co-founder and technology expert of Turbo10.com and
Trexy.com. He previously worked as an intellectual property barrister and
information systems lecturer.
Megan is Marketing Director of Trexy. She is a qualified lawyer and
Members preparing themselves for CILIP Chartership, Revalidation or
Certification will find this talk particularly useful.
CILIP in London evening meetings are free and open to all with a
professional interest in the topic. Refreshments will be available
afterwards. As space is limited, please let us know if you are coming. It
would be helpful to tell us how you found out about the event.
