Re: An Introduction to Connective Knowledge

Stephen, oh how I wish I had come accross your site sooner. I have just come across it, and will be reading your RSS from now on.

I am a Deputy Director of the Museum of Archaeology & Anthropology here at the University of Cambridge in England. I have spent the last 20 years trying to get my colleagues to understand why Wittgenstein got it right (more or less). That standardized classifications are fine for local management, but useless for sharing and extending knowledge, and that more open and collaborative systems are not only needed, but essential.

You might want to have a look at this recent paper that I published with some colleagues: Return to Babel: Emergent Diversity, Digital Resources, and Local Knowledge - Robin Boast, Michael Bravo, and Ramesh Srinivasan (http://www.indiana.edu/~tisj/23/index.html#5). [Comment] [Permalink]
