The Institution Versus the Web

I’ve been a big fan of Clay Shirky since I watched his video on the participatory potential of the Web.

I’ve also become a huge fan of TED.com and have been watching entirely too many videos up there as well (including the Johnny Lee talk).

But here’s another, earlier talk given by Shirky back in July 2005. I think he had some prescient things to say about how the Web has evolved over the past couple of years, as well as some of the threats the Web poses to institutions.
