Interview with David Weinberger, Author of Everything is Miscellaneous

(I cribbed this copy from another blog and then had to laugh, since it refers to me in the third person:)

David Weinberger will be discussing his new book, Everything is Miscellaneous, in which he explores how the new principles of disorder are remaking society, culture, education, business, media, politics, and–perhaps most importantly–libraries. This is the book that Karen Schneider described in the ALA TechSource Blog as “…dangerous. [It] takes all the precious ideas we are taught as librarians and throws them out the window.” The dedication of the book, by the way, is “To the librarians.” Weinberger, one of the co-authors of The Cluetrain Manifesto, is a fellow at Harvard Law School’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society and holds a doctorate in philosophy.
