Dr. Weinberger, standup philosopher

I think David Weinberger may be pioneering a new path for unemployed philosophers (something I’ve been many times in my career): standup philosophy. David was the speaker at last night’s dinner for Weblogs, Journalism and Credibility, and he rocked. One of the people sitting with me had seen Lenny Bruce at his prime and favorably compared David to the late comedian…

Ben Walker recorded the talk and has it posted on his site. It’s rowdy, fun, a little scattered… and very, very smart.

Hey, Dr. Weinberger! Do the one where you prove black is white! I love that bit…

Update: Ben writes to tell me that David’s talk is so popular that it’s been killing his server. So now Berkman is hosting it. You can download it here or stream it here (in RealAudio).
