Video: Clay Shirky on Twitter and the digital media revolution

Jump to Comments

This video from GRITtv featuring new media heavy-hitter Clay Shirky is worth checking out. Lots of Twitter boosting – which I know some journalists will like (though not all). And some insight into why and when such technology becomes important. Plus the whole “what is the future of journalism” meme.

Things I have learned:

  • Clay Shirky is so young. I pictured him as a 50-something, heavyweight academic.
  • He has no hair. At all. I didn’t even expect male-pattern baldness. I don’t know why.
  • Those ears. They practically have a life of their own. Respect.

The video is also worth watching for the intellectual content. Just by the way…
