LIBRARY OF CONGRESS: The Digital Future

"A series of eight discussions hosted by the Library of Congress' John W. Kluge Center, which examine how the digital age is changing the most basic ways information is organized and classified."

I listened to these talks when they first came out last year and was impressed by their insights. Videos of the talks are now archived at C-SPAN (URL below).

After listening to the eight discussions, three of them struck me as more relevant than the others to the goals of The New Research Summit:
David Weinberger's discussion of blogging, Brewster Kahle's "Universal Access to Knowledge," and David M. Levy's "Scrolling Forward: Making Sense of Documents in the Digital Age."

Thanks, Kom. I've listened to about half of Weinberger's talk and I'm intrigued by his take on the miscellaneous, and his sense of why blogs form communities (it requires "bad writing," for example--and hence a culture of forgiveness.) Interesting.
