Review

Marc Benioff, chairman, CEO salesforce.com, bestselling author of "Behind the Cloud"
"Led by the Internet, knowledge is now social, mobile, and open. Weinberger shows how to unlock the benefits."

John Seely Brown, co-author of "The Social Life of Information" and "A New Culture of Learning" ""Too Big to Know" is a stunning and profound book on how our concept of knowledge is changing in the age of the Net. It honors the traditional social practices of knowing, where genres stay fixed, and provides a graceful way of understanding new strategies for knowing in today's rapidly evolving, networked world. I couldn't put this book down. It is a true tour-de-force written in a delightful way." Daniel H. Pink, author of "Drive" and "A Whole New Mind""With this insightful book, David Weinberger cements his status as one of the most important thinkers of the digital age. If you want to understand what it means to live in a world awash in information, "Too Big to Know" is the guide you've been looking for." Tony Burgess, Cofounder, CompanyCommand.com "David Weinberger's "Too Big to Know" is an inspiring read--especially for networked leaders who already believe that the knowledge to change the world is living and active, personal, and vastly interconnected. If, as David writes, "Knowledge is becoming inextricable from--literally unthinkable without--the network that enables it" our great task as leaders is to design networks for the greater good. David casts the vision and gives us excellent examples of what that looks like in action, even as he warns us of the pitfalls that await us." David S. Ferriero, Archivist of the United States""Too Big to Know" is a refreshing antidote to the doomsday literature of information overload. Acknowledging the important roles that smart mobs and wise crowds have played, David Weinberger focuses on solutions to the crisis in knowledge--translating information into new knowledge by exploiting the network. Based upon the premise that

Acknowledging the important roles that smart mobs and wise crowds have played, David Weinberger focuses on solutions to the crisis in knowledge translating information into new knowledge by exploiting the network. Based upon the premise that knowledge lives not in books, not in heads, but on the net, Weinberger outlines a bold net infrastructure strategy that is inclusive rather that exclusive, creates more useful information metadata, exploits linking technologies, and encourages institutional participation. The result is a network that is both a commons and a wilds where the excitement lies in the limitless possibilities that connected human beings can realize. Clay Shirky, author of Here Comes Everybody and Cognitive Surplus Too Big To Know is Weinberger's brilliant synthesis of myriad little debates information overload, echo chambers, the wisdom of crowds into a single vision of life and work in an era of networked knowledge.
