Readers of this blog are very unlikely to find something they don’t know at this site.

However, readers of this blog know a great deal that doesn’t appear on this site.

Such as information on topic maps? Yes?

Something to think about.

I can’t really imagine data literacy without some awareness of subject identity issues.

Once you get to subject identity issues, semantic diversity, topic maps are just an idle thought away!

I first saw this at Nat Torkington’s Four Short Links: 26 Feb 2013.
