I mentioned in class Nielsen’s very accessible explanation of Information Foraging Theory, take a moment to look it over. If you’re interested, you can find the book on, and there are, of course, articles and conference proceedings that explain the theory as well.

  1. Rebecca Ivic says:

    One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned about theory is that nothing is as good as a useful theory, and I think this is the case for this theory. It’s rather elegant and has a multitude of applications. Granted, I haven’t read much of the literature regarding it, but I’d like to see how current studies examine the theory. The book link is helpful as well, not to mention– affordable!
