A Networked Mine is a Terrible Thing to Waste

I throughly enjoyed this video from Manuel Lima, senior UX design lead at Microsoft Bing, (via RSA) on how a networked view of the world is better suited to explain the complex relationships between things than the past “tree” view.

I feel a little vindicated as a person who is not very “T” shaped in the sense of skills or specialty. I’m much more of a polymath – knowing a little bit about many areas of knowledge – and perhaps that’s an asset, not what I’ve worried about being a negative thing.
