A good read for everyone,,
This review is from: Sorting Things Out: Classification and Its Consequences (Inside Technology Series) (Hardcover)For a classification nerd like me, this is a thoroughly engaging look at how the creation and implementiaton of classification schemes infiltrates and is affected by other social and human factors.
For the lay-reader, Sorting things out is a digestible, although sometimes overly worded introduction to the pernicious nature of categorising and dividing anything and a wake-up call to everyone to give more consideration to the segmentations we create and perpetuate on a daily basis and their wider effects.
Great for IA's - gives a wider view of the importance of labelling and structure and the behaviour of users and agents.
