According to Janet Murray, "There has to be someplace where you say, “How do we reconfigure knowledge?” Because that is what happens when you have a new medium of representation, as with the printing press. And we’re not making fast enough progress there, because nobody’s getting rewarded for it, nobody’s being paid to do it." Which is ridiculous, first, because people (like me) are working on it, and are even being paid for it, and second, because progress happens even if people aren't being paid to do things (we need to do away with this pernicious notion that people only do things they're paid to do). Despite this, this presentation from Janet Murray on culture and representation is nonetheless worth a listen.
