NYLA 2012 Keynote Speaker

Thursday, November 8, 4:00 PM

NYLA is pleased to have David Weinberger as our Keynote Speaker at the 2012 Conference.  David Weinberger, author and Internet Philosopher is perhaps best known as the co-author of the best-seller The Cluetrain Manifesto, which Information Week called the most important business book since Tom Peter's In Search of Excellence.

His latest book, Too Big to Know discusses how the Internet is transforming knowledge and expertise.  In the book, Weinberger shows how business, science, education, and the government are learning to use networked knowledge to understand more than ever and to make smarter decisions than they could when they had to rely on mere books and experts.

He is a senior researcher at Harvard Law's Berkman Center for the Internet & Society, Co-Director of the Harvard Library Innovation Lab at Harvard Law School, and is a Franklin Fellow at the United States State Department (2009-2011).  The Harvard Library Innovation Lab creates prototypes and tools that demonstrate possibilities for libraries in the networked age.

Weinberger has been published in a wide variety of journals, including Wired and Harvard Business Review many times, as well as in Scientific American, the New York Times, Smithsonian, Foreign Policy, Salon, USA Today, the Boston Globe, the Guardian...even TV Guide.

He is a well-known blogger and can be found posting frequently on his blog Joho the Blog.   http://www.hyperorg.com/blogger/.

Please note that the Keynote is a non-ticketed event this year.
