Clay Shirky and The Giant Cognitive Surplus

Posted · Add Comment

I picked this clip up from Beta Alfa.

It’s Clay Shirky, author of Here Comes Everybody, who speaks about the “giant cognitive surplus”. Watch it and marvel at facts like “An new Wikipedia could be created every week during the commercial breaks in television if people contributed instead of watching the commercials”.

I am so thankful that I get to work in this business at this particular point in history.
