I am still writing about nursing stories and trying to look at health librarianship.  The relationship between my nursing narrative and health information is interesting to me. I was reading this article called Librarianship and philosophy and found this comment on information- it is as though the blogs have turned the written word into a kind of oral tradition  “Our ideal of shared human memory belies a century of extinction of oral traditions and diverse languages. The rhetoric of automatic learning and intelligent documents does no justice to a legacy of machine instruction and monolithic models of cognition. The new function of information was derided for its lack of compassion; hence the oft-cited passage from the poet” Librarianship and the Philosophy of Information by Ken Harold

 The Rock by T.S Eliot

“Where is the Life we have lost in living?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information”
