Another one of those videos, with the text. It's ok - but the format has been done. Done, done and done. This one looks at traditional conceptions of information - like, for example, the way we have always thought of it as something that is on a shelf, categorized. "There is no shelf... the links alone are enough." After a look at Wikipedia, it becomes a paean to tagging. Well enough, but experienced Google searchers know that keywords also are not enough. I've had more success with regular expressions, but these too may not be enough. Via Joan Vinall-Cox.
