Internet Librarian 2012 where Weinberger was the opening keynote speaker. I still had one chapter to go but that didn't stop me from introducing myself and taking a picture of me with him. (It is not the most flattering photo of either of us.)
He says that the networking of information (on the web) is making profound changes in our perception of knowledge itself. For centuries knowledge has been primarily associated with books-–not only the content, but the physical properties of books. In a way, he is applying 60s philosopher and media analyst, Marshall McLuhan's idea that “the medium is the message” to the web and taking it another step - saying that not only is the meaning transformed by the medium, but the effects of the current digital revolution actually influence what we experience as knowledge.
I like reading about management, libraries, and how information affects society. I have a stack of books on these subjects waiting for me.
For a fascinating interview on many levels, check out the October 1st episode of “This Week In Libraries” on Vimeo in which rock star status librarians, Erik Boekesteijn and Jaap Van de Geer of the Netherlands (closing keynote speakers Internet Librarian 2012) interview Dr. Weinberger about his book.
