Berkman at 10

I’m at the Berkman Center’s 10th Anniversary conference — amazing agenda and people.

Being a Berkman Fellow has been one of the joys of my recent years, getting to hang around with — and pick the brains of — a bunch of folks who are much smarter than I am and who possess knowledge and wisdom.

Here’s a page with webcasts of the event.

    Dan– sorry I’m missing out. between the conference the other week and one next week, I couldn’t squeeze this in. I didn’t even crash a FFT dinner (as I’ve been known to do in the past.)

    In place of my taking the #86 bus to the conference, I’ve been contributing to the new Publius site, though only in the comments.

    Clay Shirky made this bright point:

    William James, the American philosopher, maintained that thinking is for doing, which to say that our brains don’t exist for purposes of abstract cogitation, they exist to help us decide what to do next.

    Or, as the collective wisdom of the Internet attributes Aesop: “After all is said and done, more is said than done.”
