The liquid information environment is for knowledge workers; that is, anyone who has knowledge and information as a significant work medium. The people working to make our world better, safer, more harmonious and sustainable are knowledge workers. We must support their work with better (and, in my mind) more liquid, tools and environments and we must also make them aware of these better systems and give them the confidence so they become liquid in their work.
The job of a knowledge worker is not to memorize what others have written, but to come up with informed, creative solutions and produce new, useful, accessible knowledge. This requires creative thought and free movement through information. This requires the tools and environment to be more liquid.
