||We used to have people who were knowledgeable. They relied on facts, on books, on accumulated expertise. If you had questions about their field, they had answers. Today, though, everyone is a knowledge seeker, and the smartest source—we like to think—is our online search engine, which calls up whatever we need to know. Your source tells you your facts; my source tells me mine. We’re both right. How can we rethink knowledge in an age when everyone’s an expert, facts are supposedly obsolete, and knowledge has moved onto networks? David Weinberger, author of Too Big to Know, visits Zócalo to discuss how a new age of knowledge will change our decisions, our educations, and our lives.|
Zocalo Public Square
Zócalo Public Square is a non-profit organization that builds community by broadening access to civic discourse. We present smart ideas in an open, welcoming, non-partisan, multi-ethnic space.
Zócalo launched in Los Angeles in 2003. Since then the "public square" has traveled as far as Shanghai, and this is its permanent home online.
