David Weinberger is a Mover and Shaker
But then, we already knew that.
At last night's Mass TLC annual awards gala, lots of companies and individuals were recognized in various categories. You can read about all the winners here. Doug Levin took the CEO of the Year for putting Black Duck Software squarely on the map as experts in software licensing for anyone with a software application who cares about its IP pedigree (and let's face it - everyone should).
But I was excited for David Weinberger, who won in the "Movers and Shakers" category, along with Linda Plano, who is a director at the Massachusetts Technology Transfer Center. (Linda also has chaired the MIT Enterprise Forum's Ignite Clean Energy (ICE) Business Presentation Competition for the last two years.
I've heard great things about Linda, but David was my client many years ago when he was at Interleaf. Now he's best-known as the author of The Cluetrain Manifesto, and more recently, Everything is Miscellaneous, which David talks about here. He's a brilliant, humble, dryly witty guy and it was great to reconnect with him a year or so ago.
