"The Originist." The point: human beings are defined by their
relationships — and ability to form relationships — with each other;
those relationships are evidenced by emotional ties, private language
and common myths.
This short story is by Orson Scott Card and in a collection called "Foundation’s Friends". Set in the Great Library at Trantor, in the present day of Hari Seldon, this intriguingly multilayered story about relationships, hyperlinks, notations on hyperlinks, storytelling and myths all while searching for information through the vast resources of the great library – all bring to mind what is happening right now in the blogosphere.
