Article on social scanning now available

Last week on Future2 I put up a series of posts on social scanning, my experience with scanning tools, the design of a simple scanning system, and its potential individual and professional benefits. They were extracted from a longer think-piece on social scanning, a PDF of which is now available.

In the next few weeks I’ll flesh it out with footnotes, respond to a few points that people have already brought up, and send it off to a journal. The feedback I’ve gotten suggests that the field could definitely benefit from such a system– if built to be simple, social and scalable (qualities my friend Mike Love and I argued are the hallmarks of good knowledge tools).
