And if you missed it a few months ago, the IBM study describing "the bow tie theory
" (and a surprisingly disconnected Web) makes a good companion piece. One odd note is the reseachers' claim that the Web contains "nearly a billion documents," when one search engine
alone claims to index more than a third beyond that, but I guess new and duplicate documents will always make such figures suspect.
