Memex. Our Company Name.

Memex stands for Memory Extender: a universal principle of linking information. It was founded by the American engineer Vannevar Bush. In his article “As We May Think“, Bush describes the concept of Memex in terms of two “associative trials“ designed to prevent important informtation from getting lost in the flood of knowledge.

Vannevar Bush is considered one of the founding fathers of modern computer technology. The idea of a personal knowledge storage is generally regarded as an early precursor on the PC and was taken up by Microsoft in the MyLifeBits research project. The concept of networked information became popular many years later with hyperlinks and the World Wide Web.

According to the Memex principle, we think networked. This is the added value we can offer our customers: the ability to recognise the interaction of different factors, analyse their effects and draw the right conclusions. In our experience, the best results always come from working with our customers. When information is being linked. When we bring together our customers‘ experience with our compliance knowledge. When we develop sustainable solutions for complex issues.

“Associative indexing, the basic idea of which is a provision whereby any item may be caused at will to select immediately and automatically another. This is the essential feature of the Memex. The process of tying two items together is the important thing.”
