Epistemologia del motore di ricerca

Un interessante articolo sui motori di ricerca in intranet e sui presupposti epistemologici che stanno dietro la loro creazione. Cito dall’articolo:

The supposition is usually that an employee undertakes a search to find out something that they had absolutely no prior information about, which is rarely the case. We use search even when we know the answer to a question. That is because we like to have the assurance that we have not been overtaken by events, and we can go into a meeting confident that we have found all the information that arose out of a particular project. Certainly the core function of search has always been to help us add to the knowledge that we have.
