Everything is Miscellaneous

READ this NOW. Famous for being one of the authors of The Cluetrain Manifesto (still a good read 7/8 years later) Weinberger digs deep into one of the most important issues of the day - the inherent messiness of data.

One of the few people in IT who really does understand the post-Wittgenstinian, post-Quine world of language and the corrigibility of knowledge. This is the deep root behind all of this web 2.0 stuff - the mess is the message.

Must be in the air - Tony Karrer posted this link to a video of Weinberger talking at Google at the same time!
