"The world is messy, like it or not, and it's only going to get messier as the Web destroys rules and rule-makers. You can either complain about the chaos and wish for the good old days of order, or you can buy this book and understand why delirious disorder will soon make us all smarter."--Chris Anderson, author of "The Long Tail""" "David Weinberger attacks the complexity of the real world, not by making it simple, but by making it clear. Once he explains how things can be in more than one place at a time--and make sense--you'll never look at a humble index card the same way again."--Esther Dyson"From how information is organised, to the nature of knowledge and how meaning is determined, this book is a profound contribution to understanding the impact of the digital revolution."--Richard Sambrook, director, BBC Global News"" ""Everything Is Miscellaneous" is a rare and mesmerizing mix: one the one hand, it's an essential guide to latest information age trends, one that will be extremely useful for businesses and consumers alike. But the book is much more than that as well: it's a probing and profound exploration of how we create meaning in the world."--Steven Johnson, author of "The Ghost Map" and "Everything Bad Is Good For You""" "Just when I thought I understood the world, David Weinberger turns it upside down--and rightside up--again. "Everything Is Miscellaneous "explains the radical changes happening in digital information--and therefore in society as a whole."--Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia and chair, Wikia.com
