Too Big to Know

Too Big to Know

Rethinking Knowledge Now That the Facts Aren't the Facts, Experts Are Everywhere, and the Smartest Person in the Room Is the Room

“If anyone knows anything about the web, where it’s been and where it’s going, it’s David Weinberger. . . . Too Big To Know is an optimistic, if not somewhat cautionary tale, of the information explosion.” –Steven Rosenbaum, Forbes

With the advent of the Internet and the limitless information it contains, we’re less sure about what we know, who knows what, or even what it means to know at all.
