The memex is a hypothetical proto-hypertext system described by Vannevar Bush in his 1945 The Atlantic Monthly article As We May Think. It would use microfilm storage, dry photography, and analog computing to give scholars access to an indexed repository of knowledge. Users could create associative trails that would linearly connect the microfilm frames through a chained sequence of links, adding personal comments and side trails. inspired hypertext systems & personal knowledge based…

Vannevar Bush  fully envisioned the World Wide Web 50 years before it actually appeared. Like Babbage's Analytical Engine, it was never built. He called his "web browser" a Memex. The design used electrical wires and microfilm files filling a desk to create the equivalent experience of web surfing - in particular, "hyperlinking" one page of data to another. There are two screens, one for visual display of information, and another - a touch-sensitive pad - for writing and drawing.

Five steps of evolution of elementary cellular automata (CA) rule 110. All possible initial conditions for finite CA size 10 are arranged as Grey Code with Hamming Distance equal to one between the neighbors.  This arrangement goes along the horizontal direction. Time goes along vertical direction.
