The Garden and the Stream: A Technopastoral | Hapgood

So good.

Your machine is a library not a publication device. You have copies of documents is there that you control directly, that you can annotate, change, add links to, summarize, and this is because the memex is a tool to think with, not a tool to publish with.

Everybody wants to play in the Stream, but no one wants to build the Garden.
