Yesterday, internet luminary and writer Clay Shirky joined us for a special day of Berkman@10 events at the Berkman Center and Harvard Law School. In the afternoon, Clay lead an intimate conversation at the Berkman Center on “protest culture,” which we’ll be releasing the video of through MediaBerkman in the upcoming weeks. Clay also gave a book talk at Harvard Law School, on the very first day his book Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations was released, and shot to the #1 for the Computers and Internet category on Amazon.com. David Weinberger liveblogged by the afternoon as well as the evening talks. Mary Joyce of the Internet & Democracy project offers her thoughts on the book talk as well. Cory Doctrow calls the book a “masterpiece” and reviews the book for boingboing.
Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations is now available at your local bookseller and online, so be sure to buy your copy today! To learn more about Clay Shirky’s work, visit his homepage.
