As the contemporary society is changing, knowing and its premises and conditions change together with it. This chapter explores this change and its implications to knowledge making. The main argument is that much of the contemporary experiences of change in information and knowledge practices can be understood from the perspective of how the conditions of (un)naming and (dis)trusting individuals, groups and institutions are changing. Further, it is suggested that the most significant issue may not necessarily be the change of knowing itself but rather the question of what is considered to count as knowing.
