New From Peter Morville: Ambient Findability

Peter Morville has a new Blog and a new Book. You can read

the first chapter of his New Book: "Ambient Findability". It covers the convergence of information and connectivity. Morville discusses the Internet, GIS, and other network technologies that are coming together to make unlimited findability possible. He explores how the melding of these innovations impacts society, since Web access is now a standard requirement for successful people and businesses. But before he does that, Morville looks back at the history of wayfinding and human evolution, suggesting that our fear of being lost has driven us to create maps, charts, and now, the mobile Internet.
