Here Comes Everybody: How Change Happens When People Come Together

by Clay Shirky
£9.99   paperback  Penguin Books Ltd (2009)

Here Comes Everybody: How Change Happens When People Come Together by Clay Shirky The revolution will not be televised - it will be emailed, texted, blogged, wikied...
 
Welcome to the new future of involvement. Forming groups is easier than its ever been: unpaid volunteers can build an encyclopaedia together in their spare time, mistreated customers can join forces to get their revenge on airlines and high street banks, and one man with a laptop can raise an army to help recover a stolen phone.
 
The results of this new world of easy collaboration can be both good (young people defying an oppressive government with a guerilla ice-cream eating protest) and bad (girls sharing advice for staying dangerously skinny) but it's here and, as Clay Shirky shows, its affecting... well, EVERYBODY.
 
For the first time, we have the tools to make group action truly a reality.
And they're going to change our whole world.

"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 is Bad for You' and 'Emergence')
