Reading Over the Shoulder of the Future at the Library of Congress

Interesting though ponderous essay about what we can divine from the future by observing the LoC. A postmodern look at the future of information.

“I am unsure what marks off knowledge in the digital age from an earlier, Gutenberg-era episteme. Is there a difference in how we know? Is sifting through a bunker of diverse materials heaped on a desk so terrible different than linking together multimedia resources through hypertext? How?” [thanks robert]
