Everything is Miscellaneous : The Power of the New Digital Disorder

HD 30.2 .W4516 2007

“In Everything is Miscellaneous, David Weinberger takes us on a rollicking tour of the rise of the miscellaneous. He examines why the Dewey Decimal system is stretched to the breaking point, how Rand McNally decides what information not to include in a physical map (and why Google Earth is beating them out), how Staples stores emulate online shopping to increase sales, why your children’s teachers will stop having them memorize facts, and how the shifts to digital music and playlists are not just transforming the music business but stand as models for the future in virtually every industry.” –book jacket
