Everything is Miscellaneous … The Power of the Digital Disorder

More on Everything is Miscellaneous by David Weinberger at IT Conversations (mp3):

In Everything Is Miscellaneous, David Weinberger charts the new principles of digital order that are remaking business, education, politics, science, and culture. In his rollicking tour of the rise of the miscellaneous, he examines a number of topics to illustrate this change. He joins Phil, Scott, and Ben to discuss the book.

He first discusses his background, as well as his previous books (The Cluetrain Manifesto and Small Pieces Loosely Joined). He assesses the new methods of organization and how they are changing how information is used. David also reviews how the changes affect the gatekeepers and what the future might hold for them. He shows how by “going miscellaneous,” anyone can reap rewards from the deluge of information in modern work and life.
