The Networking of Knowledge and Storytelling: David Weinberger for the Future of StoryTelling 2012

"Western culture's traditional system of knowledge is a stunning achievement," says author and Harvard Internet scholar David Weinberger at the outset of this thought-provoking video. "It made us the dominant species on the planet."
