    • The information (r)evolution
      David Weinberger, 2007
      Information is not a “thing” that has to be in a “place”. It can be in many places, all at the same time.
      Ontology is overrated.

    • The information (r)evolution
      Sing along:
      “The .com is connected to the .net. The .net is connected to the .gov…”

    • Assumptions about information

    • The information (r)evolution
      Think about what they mean for the preservation of language, for preservation of text, for the ability of people to tell their stories. It's going to be phenomenal.

    • The information (r)evolution?
      The “message” of this environment is that to learn is to acquire information, that information is scarce and hard to find (that’s why you have to come to this room to get it), that you should trust authority for good information, and that good information is beyond discussion (that’s why the chairs don’t move or turn toward one another). In short, it tells students to trust authority and follow along.

    • Acquire, share, discuss, critique, create
      ….in ways that have not been as easy, accessible, timely, or as potentially wide-spread before.
      It’s a cultural r/evolution as well as a technical one.
