    1. Another important 20th-century thinker to rely on index cards was pioneering media theo-rist Harold Innis.18 The executors of his estate published a tome called The Idea File (1980),composed of 18 inches of index cards, plus five inches of reference cards. Innis had a selection ofhand-written index cards typed up and numbered, 1 through 339. It is unclear if these rumina-tions on television and art, communication and trade, secrecy and money, literature and the oraltradition, archives and history were intended to constitute a book project; the decision to publishthe cards balances the putative will to posterity of an author, and the potential embarrassmentof incomplete work. Clearly Innis intended to work synchronically rather than diachronically,to focus less on logical connections than on analogies, to practice pattern recognition—andthe associative links of a card index lend themselves perfectly to this kind of project.

    2. Goutor indicates that "a certain amount of individual in methods is commendable, and indeed necessary." but that "it soon becomes apparent that there are some ways of doing things more efficient and ultimately more productive than others". But he goes on to bemoan that how to manuals offer little help.

      Miles Kendig (Walter Matthau) ist CIA-Agent und ein alter Hase in seinem Beruf. Er versteht etwas von seinem Job und schafft es so etwa, auf dem Oktoberfest einen sowjetischen Spionagering hochgehen zu lassen. Doch anstatt ihn mit einer Beförderung zu belohnen, entlässt ihn sein cholerischer Chef endgültig aus dem Dienst. Kendig macht seinem Ärger Luft, indem er seiner Geliebten Isobel (Glenda Jackson) einen Besuch in Salzburg abstattet. Dort trifft er auf den sowjetischen Agenten Yaskov (Herbert Lom), welcher ihn dazu überredet, seine Biografie zu schreiben. Kendig willigt ein und sendet jedes Kapitel sowohl an seinen ehemaligen Chef, als auch an den KGB. Schnell werden zwei CIA-Agenten ausgesendet, um den Fahnenflüchtigen zu finden, doch mit der Cleverness Kendigs hat niemand gerechnet…filmstarts.de
