Old Dominion University researchers have devised a way to organize large bodies of information based on the way the human brain organizes information. The method could eventually allow information repositories like the Internet to self-organize based on the way users access information, and in the process cut search time, make searching more intuitive, and preserve information about the relationships among data.. http://www.technologyreview.com/articles/rnb_060104.asp?trk=nl

"As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives." - Henry David Thoreau

"Every great advance in natural knowledge has involved the absolute rejection of authority." - Thomas Huxley
