The Harvard Library Innovation Lab recently posted a talk I had with David Weinberger, the co-director, freelance philosopher and author of Everything Is Miscellaneous. We talked about social reading, ebooks and libraries.

It’s an odd interview, having been edited down from an hour-long, wider-ranging conversation. A lot of David’s questions and all of his longer opinions have been edited out, which is unfortunate because he’s smarter than I am and more interesting to listen to. And it makes some of my answers seem a bit random and disconnected. But the core of the conversation is there, the discussion is fast-paced and should be interesting to fans of the topic.
