I'm writing this post, and I don't have a good category to put it in, so I have to create a category for it; but the process of creating the category describes some other set of things that could belong to it, and then by the time I am done with figuring out where it belongs inside my word-hoard posted to this blog I can go back and retroactively cross-post a half dozen other prototypical posts to that category so it looks like I've been thinking about it all along.
Authors to cite, preferably from my bookshelf, so that I can show a stack of books:
Lakoff, "Women, Fire and Dangerous Things"
"Sorting Things Out: Categorization and its Consequences"
something by Ranganathan that I don't have close at hand
Tony Buzan on mind mapping
Gould and White's "Mental Maps"
"Your Creative Power"
and something from Steven Winter on categories and the law.
Scheduled to post a week from today so that it has time to cook.
