Reading the 1955 paper* once again reminds me of the inspiration that the concept had from my early interest in encyclopaedism. In 1970,** Manfred Kochen commented on its role in the worldwide encyclopaedic movement.13 Today the Internet has enabled the development of Wikipedia and other grand schemes that will make the H.G. Wells dream of a World Brain a reality.— 13. Kochen M. WISE - world information synthesis and encyclopedia. J Document, 1972; 28:322–343.

- "Humans do not see and act on the physical qualities of things, but on what they mean to them"
- "A systematic inquiry into how people attribute meanings to artifacts and interact with them accordingly"
Design "brings forth what would not come naturally (...); proposes realizable artifacts to others (...) must support the lives of ideally large communitites (...) and must make sense to most, ideally to those that have a stake on them"
Attributing meaning to something follows from sensing it, and is a prelude to action. "One always acts according to the meaning of whatever one faces" (pp. 58). Meanings are always someone's construction and depend on context and culture. The same artifact may invoke different meanings in different times and places and for different stakeholders. Designers as a consequence need to get involved into second order understanding: understand each stakeholder understanding of artifacts in order to design artifacts successfully. Since meanings of others cannot be observed directly, designers need to carefully observe actions that imply certain meanings; involve themselves in dialog with stakeholders; and invite them to participate in the design process.

- The End of Harry Potter?
- an unauthorised companion to the famous series by J. K. Rowling. The work was published after the publication of the sixth volume in the Harry Potter series, but before publication of the seventh and final volume. It contains information, extracted from the books and from Rowling's many public statements, about the wizarding world and popular theories concerning how the plot will develop in the last book.
