Clay Shirky
Demos, the UK “think tank for everyday democracy”, hosted a conversation with Clay Shirky a few days ago.

He was in conversation with Demos Associate and School of Everything CEO Paul Miller, talking around the ideas thrown up by Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations, his book about the social effects of technology (see also this PPF post).

According to the organisers, “it was a fascinating talk, covering the promises of new types of group communication, community policing, international relations, through to the ‘cognitive surplus‘ opened up by a generation who may be turning away from television.”
