I coined the phrase from the movie Dune, which used "a heart plug" in
the plot (can't spell those names). The thought of an "Internet Brain
Plug" evolved from the overload I can get from the Inet. Ah well,
there are no original thoughts left. How about a:

"TECHWRITER Brain Plug"

I often feel the same overload from all the knowledge I must
assimilate to do the job. As I have said, our 10x10-17 brain is not
enough, or should I say the memory address buss is not wide enough?
