Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations

Shirky, Clay Author

Image Not Available

A woman loses her phone, and recruits an army of volunteers to get it back. A dissatisfied airline passenger spawns a movement with her weblog. Citizens with camera-phones are more effective than photojournalists at documenting the London Transport bombings. The world's largest encyclopaedia is created by unmanaged participants. A handful of kids in Belarus create a political protest the state is powerless to stop. Everywhere you look, groups of people are coming together to share with one another, work together, or take some kind of public action.For the first time in history, we have tools that truly allow for this. In the same way the printing press amplified the individual mind and the telephone amplified two-way conversation, now a host of new tools, from instant messages and mobile phones to weblogs and wikis, amplify group communication. And because we are natively good at working in groups, this amplification of group effort will change more than business models: it will change society.

Review:

Clay has long been one of my favorite thinkers on all things Internet – not only is he smart and articulate, but he's one of those people who is able to crystallize the half-formed ideas that I've been trying to piece together into glittering, brilliant insights that make me think, yes, of course, that's how it all works (Cory Doctorow, Co-Editor Of Boing Boing And Author Of Overclocked: Stories of the Future Present )



In story after story, Clay masterfully makes the connections as to why business, society and our lives continue to be transformed by a world of net-enabled social tools. His pattern-matching skills are second to none ( Ray Ozzie, Microsoft Chief Software Architect )

About the Author:

Avi Shlaim is Professor of International Relations at St. Antony's College, Oxford. His previous books include COLLUSION ACROSS THE JORDAN (1988) and WAR AND PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST (1995).

Book Description Penguin Press, 2008. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Clear thinking and good writing about big changes."-Stewart Brand "Clay Shirky may be the finest thinker we have on the Internet revolution, but Here Comes Everybody is more than just a technology book; it's an absorbing guide to the future of society itself. Anyone interested in the vitality and influence of groups of human beings -from knitting circles, to political movements, to multinational corporations-needs to read this book."-Steven Johnson, author of Everything Bad Is Good for You and Emergence "How do trends emerge and opinions form? The answer used to be something vague about word of mouth, but now it's a highly measurable science, and nobody understands it better than Clay Shirky. In this delightfully readable book, practically every page has an insight that will change the way you think about the new era of social media. Highly recommended."-Chris Anderson, editor-in-chief of Wired Magazine and author of The Long Tail "In story after story, Clay masterfully makes the connections as to why business, society and our lives continue to be transformed by a world of net- enabled social tools. His pattern-matching skills are second to none."-Ray Ozzie, Microsoft Chief Software Architect "Clay has long been one of my favorite thinkers on all things Internet-- not only is he smart and articulate, but he's one of those people who is able to crystallize the half-formed ideas that I've been trying to piece together into glittering, brilliant insights that make me think, yes, of course, that's how it all works."--Cory Doctorow, co-editor of Boing Boing and author of Overclocked: Stories of the Future Present .
