Chair: Paul Miller (CEO School of Everything and Demos Associate)
Speaker: Clay Shirky (Writer, Consultant and Adjunct Professor, New York University)
"Clay will be discussing some of the major themes from his new book Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations.
Here Comes Everybody is a book about the social effects of technology. Clay integrates a broad range of disciplines with his own pioneering work to understand the opportunities and the threats new, spontaneous networks of social interaction represent. Wikinomics, yes, but also wikigovernment, and wikimedia. A revolution in social organization has begun and at lunchtime this coming Monday we’re going to discuss what the consequences of this revolution is likely to mean for governments, democracy and society."
