First, he tends to have insightful things to say about topics I’m interested in. Good book to understand power of new technology whether it be social media or the web. Another aspect of modern communication that was explored was the collapse between amateur and professional in several areas of life.

That process proved cumbersome, so Nupedia’s founders were introduced to a “wiki”, a web page that could be edited by anyone with access to it. If Shirky and Leadbeater are right, most professions will be undermined by web-based social tools in similarly harrowing xomes. He has written about biotechnology in his “After Darwin” column in Comds magazine, and serves as a technical reviewer for O’Reilly’s bioinformatics series.

Those tools are still the leaders in social media but he could just as easily have written this five years ago using Friendster, Yahoo Groups, Kodak Gallery, or Lycos. I felt like the author was repeating himself coms and over in order to make the same point: Why did you log in to GoodReads today?

Here Comes Everybody

Here Comes Everybody opens with a story of the everyday: Shirky is an adjunct professor in NYU’s graduate Interactive Telecommunications Program ITPwhere he teaches courses on the interrelated effects of social and technological network topology — how our networks shape culture and vice-versa.

One hundred and twenty-nine people went on to edit this topic – and the description for asphalt now has the level of detail we associate with Wikipedia entries.

He also describes how lowering the barrier to allow more contribution permits more failures which means more avenues are explored and more creativity and insight gained. In time, more and more detailed information will be added to the topic.

I have a few candidates for the main reason. That is, both these writers have one or two solid ideas and then magically manage to expand them into full—length books. The only way I can justify the length of everyboddy book and all of the examples and supporting materials that are used for his basically simple ideas is that he everybdy [or believed at the time that he was writing it] that these ideas are somehow controversial.

I love the title of this book – Here Comes Everybody – and that is exactly what is celebrated here.

Overall, I think Shirky makes a compelling case for these theses. Some people remain active for long periods of time and anchor the group, while others drift in and out adding bits of value as they go. The message would have been the same: Needles to say, it was not the book for me. Acho o complemento ideal para o What Technology Wants. Reprinted from my website: This book unfolds and explains an interesting theory about the internet and how it changed modern communication, our day-to-day life and our thinking.


Shirky is cyber-utopianism galore. I really ought to write a fairer review.

Instead, clmes writing seems dumbed down and ginned up with the wide-eyed posturing in an effort to push an idea. Occasionally, however, there is a dark note, and a fear that things will go wrong. And a handful of kids in Belarus who create a political protest that the state is powerless to stop.

For the most part, he sticks with the tech-utopian populist vision of a wo A book that describes the exciting new text-messaging service called Twitter can only be described as quaint, but I see how it would have been revolutionary at the time of publication. This mass amateurization threatens to change the way news is spread throughout different media outlets.

There is massive disparity between those on the internet whose work is popular verus not so popular. And anyway, he could always go back and delete them. But how can the extreme openness cly decentralisation Shirky and Leadbeater prize survive in such a rule-bound climate? Prior to his appointment at NYU, Mr.
