Ambient Findability

This one is one my bookshelf…waiting… but this description at NEASIST is most cool, I wish I could attend:

On Ambient Findability: “At the crossroads of ubiquitous computing and
the Internet, the user experience is out of control, and findability
is the real story. Access changes the game. We can select our sources
and choose our news. We can find who and what we need, when and where
we want. As society shifts from push to pull, findability shapes who
we trust, how we learn, and where we go. In this cyberspace safari,
Peter Morville explores the future present in search algorithms,
embedded metadata, ontologies, folksonomies, mobile devices, findable
objects, evolutionary psychology, and the long tail of the
sociosemantic web.”
