As We May Think is an essay by Vannevar Bush, first published in The Atlantic in July 1945.[1]

In it, Bush makes the case for an information society mediated by shared knowledge in a hypertext system. Functionality and usage is illustrated with the workings of a memex, a device to store, retrieve, and track one's path through interlinked documents stored on microfilm.
