SPOS #669 - David Weinberger On Everyday Chaos


Welcome to episode #669 of Six Pixels of Separation. Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation - Episode #669 - Host: Mitch Joel. There are just a handful of formative thinkers that help me shape, think and rethink what I believe to know about digital, culture and the Internet. They are my oracles. I follow their every word, and I am susceptible to being highly influenced by their work. David Weinberger is one of those oracles. He melds philosophy, practical marketing experience, academic research and an unrivaled curiosity about what technology is... and what it's doing to us. There is no one with David's perspective, because no one has had a journey like his: philosophy professor, marketing VP at early Web startups, co-author of the seminal Cluetrain Manifesto, senior researcher at the leadings Harvard Internet center, co-director of a Harvard innovation lab, a writer with innumerable publications in Wired, Harvard Business Review, Scientific American, and many more. If that were not enough, Dr. Weinberger has been the marketing VP at one of the first Web search engine sites, a tech policy adviser to presidential campaigns, a Franklin Fellow at the US State Department, a writer in residence at a Google AI research group, and for seven years was a gag writer for Woody Allen's comic strip. He is as remarkable as his career path. The author of several books (Small Pieces Loosely Joined, Everything Is Miscellaneous, and Too Big To Know), he is back with a brand new one, Everyday Chaos. This book is all about possibility, and how us humans are doing in the complexity of what technology has brought. Enjoy the conversation... Running time: 57:15. Hello from beautiful Montreal.
