This paper argues that fundamental problems in the way that knowledge is represented and accessed on the Internet prevent the Internet from achieving its full, positive potential in education. Among these fundamental problems are intrinsic deficiencies in keyword search technologies, deficiencies that place undue burdens upon student, teacher, and researcher alike. Vannevar Bush’s 1945 article “As We May Think” is used as a framework for discussing in a historical perspective how knowledge representation, the growth in human knowledge, and the means by which we find and relate knowledge continue to confound our use of knowledge. Correlation-based n-dimensional search technology is offered as an important advance over keyword searchs.
