In 1945, Vannevar Bush wrote a very famous essay «As we may think»
in which he proposed a system he called «Memex»[9] which described
the basic features of MyLifeBits, the web, and many more things.

So I propose the name «Memacs» for this tool which is going to be
developed soon.

This could be epic :-)
