Clay Shirkey on Finding Time for Participation in Web 2.0
Here is a first for me-- posting video... maybe even watching a video. I am an old-time text person. This is short, about 15 minutes. Shirkey basically asserts that the big change that has come about is that we are all spending less time passively watching media (TV in particular) and spending more time producing and sharing media whether through blogs, video, wikis, map-making via Google Earth, etc. He suggests that we have spent lots of time in this passive mode and that even if a small percentage is devoted to production and sharing that we have a lot of time to convert to production and we will produce a lot of new material.
