Just received David Weinberger’s book "Everything is Miscellaneous". A fascinating read for anyone interested in trying to make sense of the digital information world we live in, and how we can thrive on information chaos. Only half-way through, but a thoroughly recommended read for anyone with knowledge management credentials.
