Lunchtime listen: Here comes everybody

Maybe I should name this west coast lunchtime listen 😉 Be that as it may, Clay Shirky gave a talk last month (click on the image to get to the video) at the Berkman Center for internet and Society covering some of the ideas from his incredible new book Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations. The focus of the talk is Shirky’s notions about the enabling power of the Web and along the way he has a lot of interesting things to say about sharing, conversation, collaboration and collective action. There’s a lot of power in sharing and Shirky points to several interesting examples of that power.
