Intertwingled Work - Greg Lloyd
An excellent post on intertwingledness in contexts. If pages/content are findable and addressable, they can be intertwingled - and it a matter of creating contexts that allow us to draw from that complexity to make meaning. Greg gives an apology for inline links, but, really, we don't need to apologize for that anymore. Let 'em eat cake.

I’m So Totally, Digitally Close to You - Clive Thompson -
Updates and weak ties. Always on means a return to village life, where everyone knows what everyone else is doing. Monitor your online persona so you can control it. "This is the paradox of ambient awareness. Each little update — each individual bit of social information — is insignificant on its own, even supremely mundane. But taken together, over time, the little snippets coalesce into a surprisingly sophisticated portrait of your friends’ and family members’ lives, like thousands of dots making a pointillist painting. This was never before possible, because in the real world, no friend would bother to call you up and detail the sandwiches she was eating." "“It drags you out of your own head,” she added. In an age of awareness, perhaps the person you see most clearly is yourself. "

Librarians Find a Place in a 'Web 2.0' World
"only a human guide or a classification system controlled by librarians can effectively sort the wheat from the chaff, Mr. Mann writes." Libraries have always had a space in web 2.0, even with increased findability.
