Too big to know



Weinberger makes a compelling case for redefining our view on what knowledge is, how it is accessed and the knowledge creation process. He clearly paints books as a limiting factor (“boundaries of paper”) in knowledge creation, distribution and currency. This has been noticeable for several years in secondary schools; I do not expect text books to survive in their current form

“He shows how pre-digital media put artificial constraint on argument, forcing it to all fit within a set of covers and pre-empting the possibility of debate among readers and writers.” Cory Doctorow
