Knowledge in Transition and Importance of Conversation in Knowledge

David Weinberger has an interesting article in i.e. Interactive Education

"Experts put knowledge into documents to communicate what they know. The postmodernists have been saying for a while that authors have no special privilege when it comes to interpreting their work. Now the web has made that idea real"

Think about the author keywords in the peer-review-articles or indexing done by A&I providers and how tagging can bring another dimension to indexing and discovery of other related subjects that the authors or indexers haven't thought about it.
