Fascinating presentation from Web Science 11 conference via James Fallows

I'm a huge fan of James Fallows' writing and blog on TheAtlantic.com generally, and today's post is particularly noteworthy: it's a link to a presentation Mark Bernstein made last week at the Web Science '11 conference. Remember surfing? And web rings? If you're like me, you have a bunch of web sites you check regularly, and maybe a few RSS feeds for blogs, and do precious little web surfing.

Bernstein's point is that small web sites, repositories for small and idiosyncratic bits of knowledge, are at risk if we all keep looking at only bigger sites. Read Fallows' post and click through the slideshow he provides. Click over to Bernstein's site and read his blog on books and reading. And then link to both of them. And to me!
