Four things you might enjoy listening to:
- Clay Shirky, Berkman Center, book talk. Great talk about Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations. It looks to be a great book. (I thought I had finagled a free copy of it, but I think mine went to Abby instead.)
- Clay Shirky at the Berkman Center, small-group talk. I missed this the first time around. It’s excellent. Shirky gets in deep on what his book means for political protest, among other things, and he expresses the worst-case scenario for newspaper death perfectly. Fascinating.
- IT Conversations: Dr. Moira Gunn interviews Clay Shirky. Great short interview. I was interested (and a bit surprised) to learn about Shirky’s work for Libya.
- IT Conversations: Jon Udell’s “Interviews with Innovators” interviews, um, me. I put this last because I’m not that proud of it. Udell is interesting to talk to, and we ended up talking for almost two hours (the second half was mostly edited out), but I think we got off to a bumpy start with recommendations and ThingISBN. Excited as I was to go past the usual surface discussion, I ended up simply boring. The line also cuts out weirdly and I said Scoble when I meant Doc Searls. Enough self-flagellation!
Update: And more Shirky! Check out Shirky on the Brian Lehrer Show.
