Knowledge Navigator – An Apple 1987 vision of 2011 PIM (and HCI)

It is nice to look at videos from the past that predicted future human computer navigation. This Apple’s video from 1987 visioned the office of a Barkley’s professor and his digital personal assistant. It is a vision some researchers share as well. PIM will probably reach similar level of ubiquity. The question is: WHEN and even HOW? Should we give it 10 more years?
