Business visionary and bestselling author David Weinberger shows how the digital revolution is radically changing the way we make sense of our lives

Human beings are information omnivores: we are constantly collecting, labeling, and organizing data. But today, the shift from the physical to the digital is mixing, burning, and ripping our lives apart. In the past, everything had its one place—the physical world demanded it—but now everything has its places: multiple categories, multiple shelves. Simply put, everything is suddenly miscellaneous.


In Everything Is Miscellaneous, David Weinberger charts the new principles of digital order that are remaking business, education, politics, science, and culture. In his rollicking tour of the rise of the miscellaneous, he examines why the Dewey decimal system is stretched to the breaking point, how Rand McNally decides what information not to include in a physical map (and why Google Earth is winning that battle), how Staples stores emulate online shopping to increase sales, why your children's teachers will stop having them memorize facts, and how the shift to digital music stands as the model for the future in virtually every industry. Finally, he shows how by "going miscellaneous," anyone can reap rewards from the deluge of information in modern work and life.


From A to Z, Everything Is Miscellaneous will completely reshape the way you think—and what you know—about the world.

Blueprint for an Escort Service is written with legal issues in mind, but from a business perspective. The idea is to send out sexy escorts or dancers/strippers by the hour, and not for sex. If opening an escort business or entertainment company is your plan, this book will save you unimaginable trouble and avert potential disasters at every corner. This book was updated in February 2012.

You are receiving the benefit of my 13 years of experience in the escort business, and the 13 years does not include several years of knowledge developed from the arrest, case, and trial that resulted in my acquittal by jury. If you are going to read advice and operational plans in relation to the escort business, don't you want that advice to come from the one escort service owner in the US that beat racketeering and conspiracy charges?

This book is written for those people that suddenly find that they're on the verge of poverty and have the desire, audacity, and guts to dig their way out of that hole. It is also written for the wage slave that wants to live for a change, or the single mother that wants to spend time with her children, not working 50 hours a week for nothing. It could also be for the person with health problems that can't go out and do physical work, or for the reader that simply wants to know about escort business operations. Adult business is what you make it, and it certainly can be fun, exciting, and profitable all at the same time. It is a potential solution to financial problems.

The entire point of the book is to make opening an escort service or entertainment company anywhere a simple project. Some chapters are short as it is not my intention to reinvent the wheel. The word count total is 33,860.
