Brief Biography

Stirling Newberry has done political work in support of the American Democratic Party as well as military and economic analysis. In 2003, he was part of the small group of people who helped organize and drive the movement to Draft Wesley Clark for President and came to some public notice when his criticisms of the early Clark campaign were picked up by the national media. While perhaps somewhat controversial at the time, these criticisms were later born out by events.

Since then Stirling Newberry has been cited by some as an expert on blogging and the social forces involved in the flowering of internet politics and is currently working on a book on the transformation of political and economic models. His work has been mentioned in Vanity Fair, Wired Magazine and He has also been cited by some as a military analyst with regard to the war in Iraq, where he is a harsh critic of the conduct of the war from the perspective of effectiveness and commensurate means for the stated ends.

He currently blogs on The Agonist and Talking Points Memo Cafe.

He is also a composer of Classical music.

Involvement in Wikipedia

  • Wikicite project Adding references and bibliographic reference material to wikimedia.

Stirling Newberry has blogged on how Wikipedia is a laboratory for emerging economic models based on a long tail contributions and coöperation systems, where competition is asserts itself over relative scarcity of attention bandwidth rather than over particular resources. In this view the reduction of decision costs is essential to increasing participation.

He is also working on the project to put a card catalog on line called Wikicite which will allow wiki editors to easily embed citations, and create bibliographic enhancement for citations used on wikipedia. The purpose of this project is to make citing within wiki easier and faster, and to subject the quality of sources to the wikiprocess, while more firmly linking wikisource to wikipedia and wiktionary.

He is also a regular contributor to articles on Economics, Philosophy, Classical music and Social movements, including Gold standard, Hyper-inflation, Romanticism, The Age of Enlightenment, Postmodernism, Modernism and History of sonata form.
