Clay Shirky's work focuses on the rising usefulness of networks--using decentralized technologies such as peer-to-peer sharing, wireless, software for social creation, and open-source development. New technologies are enabling new kinds of cooperative structures to flourish as a way of getting things done in business, science, the arts and elsewhere, as an alternative to centralized and institutional structures, which he sees as self-limiting. In his writings and speeches he has argued that "a group is its own worst enemy."
Shirky is an adjunct professor in New York Universityʼs graduate Interactive Telecommunications Program, where he teaches a course named "Social Weather." Heʼs the author of several books.
Writer, "Regret the Error," "The Corrections: A Sign of Sickness or Health?"
