So Engelbart’s ideas are about concept networks as we were all told, the ‘nugget’ posted on the assignment page had made me struggle to focus on what our actual assignment is. However, I think concepts are implemented for the best reasons. I decided to Google the definition of concepts just for giggles and found a section of the explanation I find very inspiring, “…derived from specific instances or occurrences.” Going off of what I understand Engelbart to be saying about concept networks seems to be that they are like webs of thoughts. The spider in the middles id the genius scientist and as he or she comes up with more ideas (concepts) the web grows obviously creating that network of ideas. Providing a chain or link from the previous concept to the next allowing the best results to be made from all the investigations and hard work gone into building the original concept.
