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
