When Books Talk to Each Other...

Fascinating post from Chris Armstrong on his info NeoGnostic blog that looks at intelligent digital libraries "where books read one another...and have already begun to separate intelligence and action from the human brain" - its an idea that is both exciting and creepy. Certainly worth reading as pointing the way for new directions for the web and for libraries. Made me realise that the central human characteristic of rebellion, and the right to "resist, object and refuse" will become even more socially important.
