Excerpt

“Reading lists” need to be relative to criteria. Criteria change.

Contrary to what one might believe, academics are not necessarily very skilled at using technology, but there’s no evidence that those kills correlate with academic performance, which doesn’t mean there’s no link between the two.

Utility is relative to goals and projects. “Readings” normally need to be organized by projects.

Caliber is the objective quality of the information.

Another principle is that bookmarking a web page doesn’t mean one should read it.
