Highly recommend this book if you want to begin to formulate a thought process on where will all this information (we are collecting in the digital age) take us. What do we do with all the redundant sources of information and how do we resolve issues like version control, and context objectification in the interpretation of all that information? Thought control has always been firmly under the control of those who control the knowledge base. What happens when all that information becomes widely distributed? Will the world of ideas shrink or grow endlessly as we attempt to harness all the information under the control of the dominant search engines?
Great book, well written, some great questions for us to ponder as the technology matures.
