David Weinberger

Author, ‘Everything Is Miscellaneous’

David Weinberger's new book covers the breakdown of the established order of ordering. He explains how methods of categorization designed for physical objects fail when we can instead put things in multiple categories at once, and search them in many ways.

David Weinberger is a technologist and commentator, known as co-author of the Cluetrain Manifesto (originally a website, and eventually a book, which has been described as "a primer on Internet marketing"). Weinberger's work focuses on how the Internet is changing human relationships, communication, and society.

A philosopher by training, he holds a Ph.D. from the University of Toronto and taught college from 1980-1986. He was a gag writer for the comic strip "Inside Woody Allen" from 1976-1983. He became a marketing consultant and executive at several high tech companies, and currently serves as a fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard Law School. He had the title Senior Internet Advisor to Howard Dean's 2004 presidential campaign.
