Information R/evolution - Drop Everything And Watch This Video

"There is no shelf."

I can't think of a better way to sum up this amazing video. It was created by the same group that brought us the jaw-dropping video, Web 2.0 ... The Machine is Us/ing Us.

Before you do anything else, please watch this video called, Information R/evolution:

I know, this is like the rock music video to the book Everything Is Miscellaneous by David Weinberger.

I am so moved and inspired by this video. When was the last time you could, honestly, say: "I feel smarter for having seen this."

That's how I feel.

This is what gets me excited about the Web.

This is what gets me excited about building communities online.

This is what gets me excited about people.

It's true. Everything we know about information is old, and we have to adapt to the new world disorder.
