Clay Shirky on His Book “Here Comes Everybody”

Clay Shirky at Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University

Internet technology trend watcher, researcher, and author, Clay Shirky recently spoke about his book “Here Comes Everybody” at the Berkman Center at Harvard. Here is his presentation along with two others: one the keynote at the Web 2.0 Expo, an technology industry conference and the other his Ted Talk.

“We are living through the biggest increase in human expression in human history.”
-Clay Shirky

During the presentation, Shirky points out that the web helps solve the problems of collaboration:

5 People-10 Connections
10 People-45 Connections
15 People-105 Connections

“Makes the links very, very easy to produce. Relatively ad-hoc. Relatively light weight”
