There Is No Shelf

Check out this great video. It’s about how the web has changed the way we use information and how we still struggle, to some degree, with the legacy of paper-based information systems. I find this video particularly meaningful because of my experience managing a large website using Oracle Portal. Oracle’s system is set up almost entirely as a shelving system and even uses the term found in the video–category–to label one of its central organizational methods.
