Description

"Berkman Fellow David Weinberger investigates the origin of modern "information", trying to understand what about it led us to embrace it as the dominant--paradigmatic--way of understanding ourselves and our world. David Weinberger will present an informal sketch of a direction, suggesting that we leaped into information because it reflected a long-held but squirrely metaphysics."
