In this paper we present an overview of some of the issues involved in negotiating the ‘stuff swamp’ of the World Wide Web and take a critical look at some of the solutions that already exist to assist learners seeking new information. We go on to describe a solution which we have been developing called CoFIND, a web-based learner-support system designed using evolutionary principles, which organises itself using the combined efforts of its users to produce emergent order. We observe some of the issues which arise in its use in three course modules.
