SPOS #301 – Knowing Things With David Weinberger

Posted by

Welcome to episode #301 of Six Pixels Of Separation – The Twist Image Podcast. David Weinberger is a true thinker (writer and doer) when it comes to the Internet and all things new media. He is one of four co-authors of the seminal Marketing and Business book, The Cluetrain Manifesto. He is also the author of two other amazing books about Marketing, Business, the Internet and the future titled, Small Pieces Loosely Joined, and Everything Is Miscellaneous. He’s been on the Six Pixels of Separation Podcast a couple of times in the past, and always provides enlightening commentary about how we – as a society – have been dealing with the impact of the Internet in our lives. Weinberger just published another masterpiece called, Too Big To Know – Rethinking Knowledge Now That the Facts Aren’t the Facts, Experts Are Everywhere, and the Smartest Person in the Room Is the Room. The subtitle makes it pretty simple to understand the complex things that Weinberger has been thinking about for the past few years. Enjoy the conversation…

  1. David says that the value of a (knowledge) network is in it’s disagreements.
    Very insightful and also profoundly unfortunate in the context of social. Social media (Twitter, blogosphere, etc.) abhors and punishes disagreement. Social is driven by likes (conformity, validation, and encouragement).
    The rejection of hypertext in comments by bloggers also speaks to the resistance to allowing a text to expand beyond the humble opinion and petty fiefdom of the blog.
    Thanks for a thought-provoking podcast, Mitch.
