David Weinberger

Dr. David Weinberger’s status as one of the foremost interpreters of technology’s impact on business and society continues to grow. His latest 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.

Called a “marketing guru” by the Wall Street Journal, Weinberger 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.

Weinberger addresses the key elements of an information and technology revolution that impacts how we organize our businesses, increases our customers’ new-found control of the information they touch, and challenges the core concepts of who and what we trust.

One of the connected economy’s most thought-provoking mavericks, Weinberger 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.

Weinberger turns his remarkable range of experience and knowledge to the most important question facing every business today: How is technology changing the way my employees, partners and customers are putting themselves together, and how is that changing the basics of my business? The answer will surprise you.
