Everything is Miscellaneous

August 16, 2007

Just read the review of this interesting book on Forbes. The title of the review is equally provocative: “Chaos is the new world order.”  The book itself is revolutionary with a primary theme of throwing out the old Aristotilian categories which gave us the Dewey Decimal System and other categorizations of knowledge. Today is a search engine, self-tagging world where information is placed somewhere and then the knowledge seeker creates a path to it and an organization around it. Messiness is OK and organization can be on-the-fly.

I also just finished reading the book myself. Implications for health care to follow in a future post.

Check out the blog by the author of the book.
