Explains the value of chaos

by bobrobboy (WorldCat user published 2008-06-09) Very Good Permalink

While reading this it seemed to me that there are some holes in the theory behind this book, but Weinberger covers the big idea very well.

Order and chaos can coexist and at some levels become interchangeable.  And that's more valuable that order alone.

Human beings constantly collect, label, and organize data--but today, the shift from the physical to the digital is mixing, burning, and ripping our lives apart. In the past, everything had its one place--the physical world demanded it--but now everything has its places: multiple categories, multiple shelves. Everything is suddenly miscellaneous. Weinberger charts the new principles of digital order that are remaking business, education, politics, science, and culture. He examines how Rand McNally decides what information not to include in a physical map (and why Google Earth is winning that battle), how Staples stores emulate online shopping to increase sales, why your children's teachers will stop having them memorize facts, and how the shift to digital music stands as the model for the future.--From publisher description."@en ;
