David Weinberger is currently a fellow at the Berkman Institute on Internet and Society at Harvard Law School. In 1999, he co-authored The Cluetrain Manifesto, a set of 95 theses examining the impact of the internet on markets and organizations. His latest book is Everything is Miscellaneous: The Power of the New Digital Disorder.
Mr. Weinberger’s current interests include:
We are changing the basic principles by which we organize our world. What effect will that have on our institutions and on our way of understanding ourselves and the world we share?
What policies and laws will enable the Internet to thrive as an open platform for ideas, innovation and connection?
On the occasion of the Smithsonian Institution Libraries’ 40th anniversary, the Smithsonian Institution Libraries (SIL), Smithsonian Institution Archives (SIA) and the Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) present another in a series of speakers to address the Institution on the future of libraries, museums and archives in a digital world.
