McKenzie Wark: "Gamer Theory from Screen to Page"

GAM3R 7H30RY 1.1 / "Gamer Theory" was created to investigate new approaches
to writing in the networked environment, and to see what happens when
authors and readers are brought into conversation over an evolving text.
Wark will discuss the issues and questions that came up in the process of
designing, writing and publishing the book, due out this month from Harvard
University Press. 

MCKENZIE WARK is an Associate Professor of Media and Cultural Studies at the
New School for Social Research and Eugene Lang College in New York City. He
is the author of several books, including A Hacker Manifesto (Harvard
University Press) and Dispositions (Salt Publishing).

David Weinberger: "Everything is Miscellaneous"

The digital revolution has created billions of shards of knowledge and
information. Now we are inventing processes and techniques for pulling them
together, unconstrained by the physical limitations that have silently
guided our traditional principles of organizing ideas. From Britannica to
Wikipedia, news media to blogs, the Dewey Decimal system to "folksonomies,"
we are overturning the old assumptions about who is an authority, who is an
expert, and who gets to decide what's worth knowing.

DAVID WEINBERGER, Ph.D. is a fellow at Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet
& Society. He is a co-author of the best-selling "Cluetrain Manifesto", and
the author of "Small Pieces Loosely Joined." Weinberger has written for
Wired, Salon, The Guardian, The NY Times, USA Today, Harvard Business Review
and many others. His new book, "Everything Is Miscellaneous," will be
published in May by Times Books.
