David Weinberger announces he’s joined Howard Dean’s campaign:
I now have an official title — “Senior Internet Advisor” — so I figure I should come out of the closet entirely.
I was going to leave this comment on Weinberger’s blog, but thought better of it:
It’s great that you’re advising Dean on the Internet, David, as he clearly needs to understand it.
Now the question that pops into my little mind is: “who’s advising you?”
That would have been rude, of course. But the point is that Weinberger, as a card-carrying, charter member of the Larry Lessig “End of the Internet” club has consistently demonstrated a lack of understanding of what the Internet is, how it’s put together, and where it’s going. In this job, that’s not a disadvantage, as all he needs to do is rail against Big Everything to advance the Little Guy’s campaign.
So good luck to all concerned.
