Comments on a New Blog
Information shapes knowledge, gives it a form we can understand. Further to my post yesterday on the importance of reworked ideas, I just want to point to a new blog that focuses on information, its location and its uses.
Named Information Fluency, the blog is part of a course underway at Gustavus Adolphus College in the US. If nothing else, the use of detail from this marvelous photo of a private library by Underpuppy is worth mentioning. Sometimes blog banners say it all.
Posts alternate between student writing and lecturer observations, covering everything from the lack of non-academic philosophy sites on the Web to unusual Library of Congress categories, the value of libraries themselves and the possibility of sensual experiences in gathering knowledge online.
