David Weinberger, who served as a senior Internet adviser to the 2004 Howard Dean presidential campaign, talked about the gathering and dissemination of information through Internet web logs, or “blogs.” He is a co-author of the book, The Cluetrain Manifesto: The End of Business as Usual and the author of Small Pieces Loosely Joined: A Unified Theory of the Web, both published by Perseus Books Group. He was joined by scholars in discussing issues including the accuracy and speed of information retrieval, public access to digitized information, various sources of information on the Internet, and the potential impact of the media on news reporting.

The series “Managing Knowledge and Creativity in a Digital Context” examined how the digital age was changing the most basic ways information is organized and classified and to educate the public on the influence of the digital age on their lives. Programs included a featured speaker, followed by a panel discussion, and a question and answer session with the audience at the venue, and C-SPAN television viewers who asked questions by electronic mail.
