What's an index?
So meandering from link to link filling our brain cells with snippets of ideas
which we may not have an urgent need for at the moment, but enrich our web of
associations may be passe, but we still use online indexes, don't we? Apparently
not. Finding information via a search engine has become so simple, that we hardly
ever take the opportunity to seek out organized knowledge via an index. Years
ago I encountered teachers who didn't know the difference between a search engine
and an index, and it seems to have only become worse since then.
