Dr. David Weinberger|
Author of "Small Pieces Loosely Joined"
Co-Author of "The Cluetrain Manifesto"
"If the Web is a journey 1,000 miles long," says Dr.
David Weinberger, "we've barely begun to pack our
bags." He brings truly unique credentials to the task
of "unpacking the Web." He is a co-author of the
bestseller The Cluetrain Manifesto which
InformationWeek called "the most important business
book since [Tom Peters'] In Search of Excellence."
His latest book, Small Pieces Loosely Joined (Spring,
2002), is a remarkable exploration of how the Web is
rewriting the most basic understanding of ourselves
and the real world. He is a commentator on National
Public Radio's "All Things Considered," and is
a columnist for KMWorld, internet.com, and Darwin
Magazine. His work has appeared in many magazines,
ranging from Harvard Business Review to the New York
Times to Wired. As well as writing about the way the
Web is changing business and society, Dr. Weinberger
has been an active participant -- working for,
founding and consulting with companies -- from F500's
to early- stage start-ups -- in the new market space.
Oddly, he has a Ph.D. in philosophy from the
University of Toronto and taught college for six
years. Dr. Weinberger is on various industry and
company boards, and speaks around the world about
the Web's impact on business and culture . He lives in
Boston with his family and can be reached at
