I’ve thought a lot over the years, as you no doubt have too, about the nature of information and how we make sense of it in a digital world. I’d never once thought of how we have, particularly in the past, objectified information. It is a thing, in a bounded place, that is to be stored and retrieved as an object. Well, maybe not so much in a digital world–the very corporeal nature of information is challenged. I thought this video did a nice job of demonstrating a few older and newer ways to think about information.
