Clay Shirky on cognitive surplus

Since I seem to be on a kick posting videos, I thought I would post a recentish talk by Clay Shirky about collaboration and cognitive surplus. Clay Shirky is interesting and he wrote Here Comes Everybody, which was pretty good. He has two other TED talks and you can find links to them from his TED profile. More importantly, you can check out and download Ushahidi, which Shirky explains a little about, right here. I’ll be checking it out and maybe launching a test of it and hopefully I can write more about it here in the future.
