Class Notes: 25 Jan 2005
Human Information BehaviorLast night's class was a vital introduction to the field. I still have my reservations about the application of the word field to HIB. Are LIS people the only people studying HIB, oh, and IT people, of course, since the crash, notwithstanding, when the great diaspora took place. All those programmers leaving their six figure jobs to join forces with real information people, and people who care about the written word, not just documentation, to create a world, where metaphors matter, and must exist.
