Highly recommend reading this: Weinberger, David. Too Big to Know: Rethinking Knowledge Now That the Facts Aren't the Facts, Experts Are Everywhere, and the Smartest Person in the Room is the Room . Perseus Books Group. 2012.
He says: Knowledge has been about reducing what we need to know. Knowledge is now a property of the network, and the network embraces businesses, governments, media, museums, curated collections, and minds in communication. What has our Web experience revealed so far? His five factors are:
• Abundance. There is more available to us than we ever imagined back in the days of television and physical libraries.
• Links. Ideas can be hyperlinked, and you can go from one to another with a mere click.
• Permission-free. The default is that people can read, post, and build what they want on the Net.
• Public. What you can see, generally others can see. The Net is a vast public space within which the exclusion of visitors or content is the exception.
• Unresolved. The longer you spend on the Net, the more evidence you have that we are never all going to agree on anything.
