Here Comes Everybody by Clay Shirky

In books read on May 28, 2008

I thought this would be an interesting read because it's all about stuff I know quite a lot about, basically people using the internet and other 21st century technologies to organise themselves and make things happen that would never have happened before. In the beginning though I found it a bit on the boring side. Mostly this was because I know quite a lot about the subject. A good proportion of the examples used in the text were already familiar to me. And I've read the blogs of practically everybody thanked by the author, many of whom are also quoted in the book.

In the end though I gained something from reading this in book form rather than as a lot of little stories on the net. There were plenty of examples here that I hadn't heard about and plenty of extra elucidation about things I thought I understood. A worthwhile and entertaining read.
