    The Networking of Knowledge and Storytelling - David Weinberger

    Uploaded May 29, 2013
    “Western culture’s traditional system of knowledge is a stunning achievement,” says author and Harvard Internet scholar David Weinberger at the outset of this thought-provoking video. “It made us the dominant species on the planet.” But it was constructed as a series of stopping points: you asked a question, and you got an answer—on the page of a book or newspaper, say, or from an expert or a teacher. That system worked well when knowledge was put down on paper. Now knowledge lives on the hyperlinked Net, and links offer a never-ending invitation to go further, to know more. What happens, to quote Dr. Weinberger, when “the smartest person in the room is the room”?

    The Future of StoryTelling summit (FoST) was founded on the belief that stories—in the broadest sense of the word—shape the meaning and momentum of everyday life.

    Stories will never die, but the ways we tell them are changing.

    FoST brings together top executives, creatives, and technologists with the influence to change the way stories are told. How will we create and share powerful stories as technologies evolve?
