Technology Future technology we all need to be aware of, according to PC Magazine. I'm particularly interested in Text Mining, which is an ultra-specific search engine which will look through mountains of unsorted text and pull out anything which is relevant, which reminds me of the way the human mind tries to remember things. Still the material has to be on computer in the first place. I've been reading many non-fiction books lately without indexes, making cross referencing impossible. I'm waiting for the day when a system is designed which can take a book and automatically scan it in, turning the pages itself as necessary creating a digital facsimile automatically. I could then search the result. A text version of CD ripping software.
