Web of Ideas: The Social Effect of Architecture

with David Weinberger

 The Social Effect of Architecture

This week's Web of Ideas features a special guest, David P. Reed, one of the Internet's architects and most articulate thinkers. He is a co-author of the seminal paper on the "End-to-End" architecture of the Net, the creator of what's now called Reed's Law that locates the value of the Internet in its ability to enable groups to form, and is leading proponent of Open Spectrum research. Series host David Weinberger, a Berkman Fellow, will interview Dr. Reed about what effect the technical architure of the Internet has on its social uses, leaving plenty of time for open discussion. Note: This will not be a technical session and is likely to range over the many topics Dr. Reed studies.

This session took place on 12/8/04.

Web of Ideas is a Wednesday night discussion series at the Berkman Center, lead by Berkman Fellow David Weinberger, co-author of The Cluetrain Manifesto and author of Small Pieces Loosely Joined and Everything is Miscellaneous.
