Cognitive Surplus…

  • Alan Herrell posts Clay Shirky’s recent O’Reilly Web 2.0 talk at Raving Lunacy. It’s an eye-opener for anybody who is the least bit of a cliometrician. He posits that millions of brain dead hours we’ve spent on the couch staring into the TV set have begun to be converted to something new, something shared, something constructive.

    What dazzled me is that Shirky is done flogging his recent book “Here Comes Everybody,” and has moved on to share other insights. I heard him last month at’s Freedom to Connect. Heath Row live blogged that talk with the accuracy of a court reporter.

    In this election season, it’s great to hear a public speaker who isn’t simply delivering schtick.
