Antelope

One of my favorite memes right now is the Information Science Antelope. It’s hilarious to those of us who have been/finished information science programs. We spend forever questioning WHAT is information. We ask ourselves, “Can an Antelope be a Document?” (seriously. SERIOUSLY) and we read things like “WHAT, IF ANYTHING, IS A ZEBRA?”, an Essay by Stephen Jay Gould in Hen’s Teeth and Horse’s Toes, 1984.

 

So think about it…. really. I’ll wait here.

  1. As a cultural studies scholar, I am not sure if an antelope is a document, but I am sure it (he? she?) is a text 🙂
