The Internet’s Belgian Roots

The Internet’s Belgian Roots | Biblio | Scoop.it

Belgium holds a special place in the history of information science. In 1895, Paul Otlet and Henri La Fontaine set about to collect and classify all of human knowledge. Their ambitious undertaking resulted in the production of more than 16 million index cards. It was a keyword database and search engine ‘avant la lettre’. Housed originally in the Cinquantenaire Park in Brussels, the Mundaneum lives on today as an archive and exhibition space in Mons.

A partnership between the Mundaneum and internet search giant Google signed in March 2012 has helped to rescue Otlet and La Fontaine from obscurity. The contrast between Google’s modern data center in nearby Saint-Ghislain and the paper-based system of Otlet and La Fontaine couldn’t be greater. But Google, which shares the ambition to organize the world’s information, sees these two figures as forefathers of the internet.

To help bring order to the wealth of material they collected, Otlet and La Fontaine developed the Universal Decimal Classification system, still in use today. Their system allowed subjects to be cross-linked, so researchers could easily pursue related topics. This was the analogue precursor of the hyperlink, the foundational concept of the web. As their data collection grew to an unwieldy size, the pair ran up against the technological limitations of their day.

Here, Paul Otlet began thinking of new ideas for information management and sharing, which today seem remarkably prescient. He presaged the search engine, networks, collaborative encyclopedias, mobile devices, multimedia, electronic data storage and more…

The internet has so radically transformed the way we live, work and study in the past 20 years that it is easy to forget how we found answers to our questions before Google existed. The internet is a global phenomenon, but the Mundaneum is a reminder of Belgium’s important role in its history.

Otlet and La Fontaine believed that knowledge is a democratizing force and the spread of knowledge would help bring world peace. In fact, this year the Mundaneum is celebrating the centenary of the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to Henri La Fontaine in 1913 for his role in the international pacifist movement.
