“Why I Think Books Should Die”

My friend Noz Urbina, who shares our vision of adaptive content, recently interviewed me for this provocative essay. It very clearly (and very flatteringly) explains the motivation for the content architecture of The Discipline of Organizing and how this content architecture is reflected in the processes for building and customizing different editions of the book.

Noz ends the essay with this too clever statement:

We need to kill books as they’re envisioned today and move to something like “content collections” or “author-maintained IAs” or “Bodies of Organized Knowledge.” I like that last one… we could call them BoOKs for short.
