And this was written in 1934....................

      "The huge mass of published material grows by the day, by the hour, in amounts that are disconcerting and sometimes maddening.  Like water falling from the sky, it can either cause flooding or beneficial irrigation."
-Paul Otlet, as excerpted from Alex Wright's Cataloging the World:  Paul Otlet and the Birth of the Information Age
