Google Tech Talk by Alex Wright

Just started reading Alex Wright's book, Glut. Mastering Information through the Ages. It's really interesting and gives a wonderful overview of the history of 'information management'.
Alex also just gave a Google Tech Talk on his book. It's not a substitute for the book, but it's worth your time anyway.

Interesting fact: Xerox PARC coined the term "information architecture". (35:00) There mission was: "The Architecture of Information".
