everything's coming up misc.

Excited to get a new-book-fresh-smelling copy of David Weinberger's Everything Is Miscellaneous today.

So far, I love the little yellow dot, the blurbs by heavy hitters like Esther Dyson and Chris Anderson. I love the term "information omnivores" which has summoned for me visions of bizarre half-human, half-dinosaur creatures grazing in a field lush with data. Yum!

I love David's picture on the jacket, its sparkly blueness. And -- as if you can't tell -- I haven't started reading it yet. But I'm on my way.
