New issue of JOHO

As usual, lots of great stuff in David Weinberger’s latest JOHO.  A few samples:

“[M]etadata doesn’t scale. And that means
that the Internet will never be a unified “information space”
that can be searched and utilized transparently. It’s always going to
be lumpy, local and tribal.”
——
“It is essential by the nature
of publishing and essential to the purpose of building a public domain that
works escape the control of their creators.”
——
“The Dean campaign in particular has figured out how to crack
the nut of mass-ness. How do you connect a single candidate to several million
supporters in a meaningful way? You don’t. You enable the supporters to connect
to one another.”

I particularly like that last one.
