7 Responses to “Linked Data = Rationalized Serendipity”

    Chris:

    Excellent points all around. Linked Data does indeed hold the promise of providing a way to create the opportunity for serendipitous discovery, albeit mediated by the types of linkages that are created. If librarians, information managers, historians, social science researchers are using their sets of expertise to generate these linkages, then these links might indeed be more rational than just wandering through the physical stacks and pouring through multiple physical collections.

    Keep up your musings: they have a lot to offer your fellow librarians.

    I’ve written a post on why the ancients built the Library at Alexandria Egypt, I invite you to my blog to give it a read. I don’t mind good criticism.
    Peace,
