Digital Faith Part 3

Just time to note this quickly – I’ve had these tabs open for a week or so in Firefox: further to my previous posts on ‘digital faith‘ the new book by David Weinberger of Cluetrain Manifesto fame, entitled ‘Everything Is Miscellaneous‘, sounds interesting. I first came across Cory Doctorow’s review and then from a Christian perspective Bill Kinnon mentioned it in a post about Rupert Murdoch. Essentially, Weinberger argues that old forms of hierarchical classification no longer work – this is the Web 2.0 era of tagging. As I say, no time to explore now, but sufficient to note that this sits with postmodern suspicions of power, with digital faith issues of interactivity and indeed with the Body of Christ.
