The Web of Alexandria (follow-up)
"The "web" is an infrastructural system that was built by people, and it was built very recently and very sloppily. It currently has the property that it forgets what must be remembered, and remembers what must be forgotten. It manages to screw up both the sacredness of the common record and the sacredness of private interaction. … It might be that the notion of "the" web -- in the sense of a single complex protocol supporting all human communicative purposes -- isn't a very good idea."
