I run a design studio that specialises in digital design (web, interactive, multimedia) for cultural institutions, and I also teach digital design to arts students at the University of Canberra. I'd be a polymath if I was particularly good at anything that I do. I'm interested in using digital tech to overcome information overload: I'm looking at ways to make it all make sense.

Mostly unedited. And without context. Or rational order. Datavisualise that!

How does one maintain a [digital] library?

August 24th, 2010 § 2

Most of the texts that I read a generation ago for my degrees are viewable still as a couple of shelves of books in my study. But more and more of our reading is online, invisible, evanescent. Instapaper and Delicious can help – but how do I keep track of what I read and what I know? I’m interested in finding ways to organise and visualise what I’m thinking.

I’m also interested in what happens when, as seems inevitable, our outboard brains start being shared. Do I want my idiosyncratic associations made public? By somehow reifying those connections, do I ossify them? What kind of thinking does this represent?
