I am rereading Ambient Findability by Peter Morville for a course that I am facilitating at the Information and Knowledge Strategy Program at Columbia University.  I search around for addtional material on the book and Peter Morville and found this video of his talk to Google Tech Talks.   This is a great presentation and adds deeper insight into Peter's findability comments and the book.
