Dugg: The Internet Organizes Itself: Here Comes Everybody | Glenn Fleishman

"(…) Clay Shirky's (…) book "Here Comes Everybody" (The Penguin Press, 2008) explains his views on the power of individuals to organize into groups without companies, hierarchies, or outside efforts. (…)"

Glenn Fleishman writes:

"(…) I sat down with Clay on 14-Mar-08 to talk about the book for a short article that appeared in the Seattle Times, focused on the business side of his book. However, the Seattle Times allowed me to publish a podcast of our roughly 40-minute conversation. (…)"

The 40-minute podcast is indeed worth the listen. Clay talks about a lot of stuff, including the notion that we don't yet understand where the Internet will be taking us. And another thing I found quite interesting was his reference to "more is different", i.e. scale changes the nature of things (such as the Internet).

(via Charlie Schick, who adds on a personal note:

"(…) My tongue is bleeding, I am biting it so hard. Though a beer can
loosen it, in case you are interesting in a tale of enlightenment,
abandonment, discovery, creativity, stealing, cluelessness, and
dissapointment. (…)"

Charlie, what's your favorite beer? Come visit and I'll put it cold for you.
