This link to three talks on creating, sharing, and listening to information was suggested for Memorial Day weekend. Why not use time this weekend to catch up? From the Nieman Journalism lab’s description of the events at Berkman:
First was James Gleick, talking about the ideas contained in his terrific book The Information: A History, a Theory, a Flood. Then came metaLABâ€™s Matthew Battles, who brought in his knowledge of the history of knowledge to talk about what it might mean to â€œgo feralâ€ on the Internet. And finally, earlier this week, Mike Ananny of Microsoft and Berkman spoke about the publicâ€™s right to hear and how APIs are changing media infrastructure and affecting free speech.
