David Weinberger explains his theory on 'everything is miscellaneous' and why this is good for us

David Weinberger, co-author of the bestselling book The Cluetrain Manifesto, gave a one hour talk at Google in June 2007 as part of the Authors@Google series. His new book describes how the digital revolution is radically changing the way we make sense of our lives. He argues and illustrates how the digitization of everything is changing the way human beings function in the world.

In this incredibly lively talk, he covers miles and miles of intense intellectual concepts at lightning speed, talking about and explaining the contents of his new book titled Everything is Miscellaneous.

This is a wonderful presentation replete with brilliant ideas, humor, breakthrough glimpses of the past, present and future and observations that will make you think the world indeed is flat.

His photography is extremely engaging and his personality and style is part of the phenomenon that he creates as he speaks. He communicates by building vivid theoretical frameworks and colorful imaginary pictures simultaneously. He’s educational and entertaining.

Every now and then he’ll take a breath of air!

His basic idea? The world is clustered into categories and the way the world is organized by us humans is pretty nice. The one who gets to classify is powerful. The classic order of the world is changing and what used to be understood as stable is no longer operable in the dynamic digital new world in which we live.

This has important implications to how we function and communicate with each other in the future.
