I’m reading Here Comes Everybody: the Power of Organizing without Organizations by Clay Shirky. I’m about half-way through, but I’m so excited about it I want to talk about it now.
It’s about social media online, basically, and explains the real world effects of social media such as MeetUp, Flickr, blogs and more. One of the things blogging has done for me is that it’s gotten me into social media stuff I might not have done otherwise.
The book explains a lot of things that you sort of knew, or had a gut feeling about, but he explains the how and why of it. I was a communications major in college, so this is right up my alley.
This book probably isn’t of interest to all my readers, but if you’re into blogging, photo sharing and in general life online, or if you’re in an organization and want to know how to grow your group using online tools, then you will enjoy this book. You will find yourself saying, “Oh! I thought so!”
