The waning importance of categorization

Ubiquity, Volume 2006 Issue May | BY Espen Andersen 


Full citation in the ACM Digital Library

The mobile phone has caused us to plan less and communicate more. The Internet causes us to categorize less and search more - and media's increasing Internet nervousness is driven not just by fear of diminishing revenues but from the fear of a loss of importance of categorization. When everybody can find everything and networked computers determine what is relevant, media companies lose their ability to create agendas. To maintain their influence, they will need to let the Internet shape their main products, not desperately try to keep the world as it is. | 526: Invalid SSL certificate

I volunteer with a group of >65 year olds and they are always asking for a chart(usually hierarchical)to show how the internet works! They can't quite iimagine the world you are describing. They want organization!

"As search engines become better, they will cause us to search rather than categorize, just like mobile phones have caused us to communicate rather than plan." I can't agree more about this.Thanks Professor.
