KM and Skimming

This is an interesting quote by David Weinberger and is presented in a KM context (the article is actually on Podcasting).

"This is a problem with many—nay, most—KM systems. They're devoted to the art of skimming. It starts at the system level: There is soooo much information in an organization that we should be able to skim it and present the cream. Then we should present the cream itself in skimmable form: I can check my KM portal and check the day's developments in mere seconds. If I see a headline that looks interesting, I can open it up and then skim the contents. Skimming is obviously hugely important. But sometimes you should swim, not just skate on the surface."
