I started Alex Wright’s Glut: Mastering Information Through the Ages a couple of days ago. I have a number of other books/learning projects on my plate at the moment but I really want to get to this book while the discussions of it are still raging. So I thought I’d put on the bedside table and read it in chunks at night. It won’t work.
Bedside books should be interesting in a sort of “hmmm… that’s a new idea” way not in a “oh hell yes, that’s what I’ve been thinking but couldn’t put into words” way. Nothing that stirs any passion in your intellect, if you see what I mean.
The first six pages of Glut provided two of those “oh hell…” moments. It will have to move back into the the office and wait it’s turn in the big stack. sigh
