"the brain is better described as a self-organizing system." (

Notwithstanding the quote above, our brains need a little help.

Why do blogs have dates? So we know what is most recent.
Why are blogs archived? So we can search/review previous posts in a chunked manner.
Why do blogs have teasers and titles? So our we can choose whether to invest time ready it or not based on title and brief content.

It is about providing "context" for the content.

So, even a self organising brain can get some help from a well constructed blog, learning environment (LMS) or book (contents, index, glossary etc. are old-world technologies that actually work in the new 2.0 world).
