Martin writes "This article from Slashdot reviews a recent book by Peter Morville, an information architect. He defines "ambient findability" as "a realm in which we can find anyone or anything from anywhere at anytime." The reviewer recommends that many people, including librarians, should read the book, saying that it will "amaze and delight you. It will give you new insight into how ubiquitous computing is affecting how we find and use information and how we, as users, can and will shape the future of how data is stored and retrieved.""
