David Weinberger

Biography

David Weinberger’s status as one of our foremost interpreters of technology’s impact on business and society continues to grow. His latest book, Too Big to Know: Rethinking Knowledge Now That the Facts Aren’t the Facts, Experts Are Everywhere, and the Smartest People in the Room Is the Room, gets to the heart of what we need to know, and too often don’t, about how the network world’s flood of information is transforming business and society.

His earlier book, Everything Is Miscellaneous: The Power of the New Digital Disorder, reveals new principles for taking advantage of the onrushing flood of information in order to help us pull ourselves together now that we’ve blown ourselves to bits.

David has been called a “marketing guru” by the Wall Street Journal, he is co-author of the influential bestseller The Cluetrain Manifesto (1999), and author of the critically acclaimed book Small Pieces Loosely Joined (2002), a highly original and accessible reflection on the human impact of the internet.

One of the connected economy’s most thought-provoking mavericks, David is a fellow at Harvard University’s prestigious Berkman Center, a former philosophy professor, NPR commentator, technology columnist, weblogging pioneer, and a dot com entrepreneur. A dynamic and witty speaker, he has received widespread acclaim – and we can prove it! – for captivating presentations to such companies as IBM, Yahoo, Microsoft, Google and Disney.
